Bartering[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, piglins may barter 4 to 16 nether brick block when given a gold ingot.

Usage[edit]

Nether bricks are non-flammable and immune to ghast fireballs, making it a suitable shelter material for the Nether.

If a nether bricks block is inside the whole bounding box of a nether fortress (not just inside the individual parts), nether fortress mobs (such as blazes and wither skeletons) can spawn on it if other normal conditions are met. It is not known if this is an exclusive property of the block.
