Coral is a relatively new addition to Minecraft, but its history goes back a long way. The devs expressed interest in adding it to the game way back in 2009, very early in development. Then it was teased in 2012 in a fake snapshot, alongside "fish blocks". But it took until the Update Aquatic, released in July 2018, before coral finally began populating Minecraft's deep, dark oceans. Coral comes in five types – tube, fire, horn, bubble and brain. Which are the names I will be giving the next five dogs I adopt. There are also fan-shaped variants of all five, which grow on the sides of blocks as well as the tops.

Duncan Geere[1]

Corals are non-solid blocks that come in five variants: tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.

Dead corals are the dead variants of coral.

Occurrence[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Corals generated in warm oceans.

Corals can be mined instantly, but can be obtained only when mined with a Silk Touch enchanted tool.

Corals naturally generate in coral reef structures found in warm ocean biomes.

Post-generation[edit]

When using bone meal on dirt, coarse dirt, sand, red sand or gravel underwater, coral generates in place of some of the seagrass.‌[Java Edition only] However, this works only in warm ocean biomes.

Dead coral is created when coral is placed out of water.

Usage[edit]

Info[edit]

Corals can be used as a building or decoration block. If it isn't adjacent to a water block, it quickly transforms into dead coral.[needs in-game testing] If at any time the block above a coral is removed (such as by using a bucket to remove a water source block or by breaking a solid or transparent block) and not immediately replaced with water (which can flow into the block or be left behind when a waterlogged block is broken), the coral breaks and drops nothing.

Block loot[edit]

Dead coral[edit]

In order for coral to stay alive, at least one of the blocks surrounding it must be water. If placed outside of water, it dies and transform into its respective dead coral after a few seconds.
