A coral block is a solid block that comes in five variants: tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.

A dead coral block is a dead variant of a coral block.

Natural generation[edit]

Coral blocks and dead coral blocks naturally generate in coral reef structures. These are found in warm oceans.

Obtaining[edit]

Coral blocks can only be obtained with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch, otherwise, they drop the respective dead coral block. Dead coral blocks can be obtained with any type of pickaxe.

Trading[edit]

In Java Edition, one coral block can be bought from wandering traders for 3 emeralds, while in Bedrock Edition, 3 of the same coral block can be bought for 1 emerald.

Usage[edit]

Schematic of valid block placements for coral blocks
with water around. Several ways are shown where the
arrangement would cause coral blocks to stay alive
or die.

Coral blocks and their dead variants can be used as building or decoration blocks.

Sea pickle farm blocks[edit]

Coral blocks grow sea pickles when bone meal is used on them.[more information needed][Java Edition only] Additionally, if sea pickles are planted on coral blocks, using bone meal on the sea pickles increases the number of sea pickles and creates more sea pickles on nearby coral blocks. Specifically, they can spread to the original sea pickle's level or one level below, out to a horizontal taxicab distance of 2. This is the only way to farm renewable sea pickles.

Dead coral blocks[edit]

In order for a coral block to stay alive, at least one of the six directly adjacent blocks must be water. If placed outside of water, it transforms into its respective dead coral block after a few seconds — a grayscale version of the coral block.

History[edit]

Java Edition Classic
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 mobs and "fish blocks".
November 18, 2017Coral blocks were shown in a clip at MINECON Earth.
Blue Coral Block MineCon2017.pngMagenta Coral Block MineCon2017.pngYellow Coral Block MineCon2017.pngDead Coral Block MineCon2017.png Horn coral, fire coral, tube coral, and dead coral were shown (only one variant at the time), and in the clip slab variants of coral were shown as well, although they were not implemented.
1.1318w09aTube Coral Block Revision 1.pngBrain Coral Block Revision 1.pngBubble Coral Block Revision 1.pngFire Coral Block Revision 1.pngHorn Coral Block Revision 1.png Added coral blocks, which at the time were called simply "coral", and the tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn variants were named blue, pink, purple, red, and yellow, respectively.
Dead Coral Block Revision 1.png Added dead coral blocks, which at the time were called dead coral and did not have any variants.
18w10aTube Coral Block Revision 2.pngBrain Coral Block Revision 2.pngBubble Coral Block Revision 2.pngFire Coral Block Revision 2.pngHorn Coral Block Revision 2.png Changed texture of all coral blocks.
18w10bDead Tube Coral Block Revision 1.pngDead Brain Coral Block Revision 1.pngDead Bubble Coral Block Revision 1.pngDead Fire Coral Block Revision 1.pngDead Horn Coral Block Revision 1.png Replaced the single dead coral block with five dead coral blocks[1] (once again, called dead coral at the time). Like coral blocks, they were blue, pink, purple, red, and yellow at the time, but were later changed to tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.
18w10dAdded coral reefs, allowing coral blocks to generate naturally.
18w14bWhat was previously called "Coral" has now been renamed to "Coral Blocks", and what was previously named "Coral Plants" have now been renamed to "Coral".
The blue, pink, purple, red, and yellow variants of all coral blocks and dead coral blocks have now been renamed to tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn, respectively.
18w16aMining coral blocks now require Silk Touch to drop them.
Coral blocks now have a short delay before dying.
Coral blocks no longer die as long as one side is touching water.
pre6Living coral blocks now have new sound events: block.coral_block.break, block.coral_block.fall, block.coral_block.hit, block.coral_block.place, and block.coral_block.step.
Bedrock Edition
1.4.0beta 1.2.14.2Tube Coral Block Revision 2.pngBrain Coral Block Revision 2.pngBubble Coral Block Revision 2.pngFire Coral Block Revision 2.pngHorn Coral Block BE.png Added coral blocks. At this time, coral blocks would die only if they touched air or void blocks, meaning that coral technically did not need water to stay alive.
