Cracked stone bricks are a stone bricks variant which is also found in strongholds and in the basements of igloos.
Mossy stone bricks are another variant, which is yet also found in strongholds.
Stone bricks can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

- Strangely, when smelting cobblestone blocks, the cracked form of stone, they turn into stone without cracks. Yet when smelting stone bricks without cracks they turn into a cracked variant. This could be a reference to two different processes: how rocks expand when heated, and causing fissures which could make the stone bricks crack; or simply melting the cobblestone so it reforms into igneous stone.
