- Going by descriptions, there are 29 quintillion (2.9*1019) unique firework stars (plus 1 if you count the blank one in creative mode) and 19 quadragintillion (1.9*10136) unique firework rockets (plus 3 if you count ones made with blank stars), but going by their visual effects, there are only 2.1 trillion (2.1*1012) distinct firework stars and 39 sesvigintillion (3.9*1082) distinct firework rockets.
- Putting firework stars on rockets used for flying with elytra will cause the player to take explosion damage.
