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[JEBE & LCE only] are the dead variants of coral.

Natural generation[edit]

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

Unnatural generation[edit]

When using bone meal on dirt, coarse dirt, sand, red sand or gravel underwater, coral will generate in place of some of the seagrass.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only] However, this only works in warm ocean biomes.

Dead coral is created when coral is placed out of water.‌[Java and Bedrock editions only]

Obtaining[edit]

Corals generated in warm oceans.

Corals can be mined instantly, but can only be obtained when mined with a Silk Touch enchanted tool.‌[JavaBedrock and Legacy Console editions only]

Usage[edit]

Corals can be used as a building or decoration block. If it's not placed underwater, it will quickly transform into dead coral.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 will break and drop nothing.

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 will die and transform into its respective dead coral after a few seconds.‌[Java and Bedrock editions only]

May 21, 2009Notch expresses interest in a suggestion regarding corals by user "solarblade".
Java Edition Alpha
June 28, 2010Notch mentioned on his blog: "I tried adding corals, but it’s really hard to draw a single block that looks like corals, since it's really more about crazy amounts of variation and diversity. But I do know that the corals will have tiny fish particles around them."
Java Edition
October 5, 2012Coral were jokingly teased in the fake snapshot 12marc40awesome, along with fish as mobs and "fish blocks".
