Nether fossils are fossils that generate in soul sand valleys.

Generation[edit]

Nether fossils generate randomly throughout the Nether in soul sand valleys.

Structure[edit]

Nether fossils are composed of bone blocks. Unlike regular fossils, they do not have a lowered structure integrity and no blocks are replaced with coal ore. They are made with the NBT structure block format and the NBT files for each fossil are stored in the folder minecraft.jar/data/minecraft/structures/nether_fossils.

There are 14 different variants of nether fossils:
