Duncan Geere Mojang avatar.png Moss stone was added to Minecraft in the very earliest days of the game in the same update that gave us iron, TNT, bookshelves and obsidian. During the game's Indev phase, the player first spawned in a small house made of moss stone, and later on the block was also used in the construction of jungle temples and zombie villages.

Moss stone is a block of cobblestone with moss growing in its cracks.
