The nether star is a rare item dropped by the wither that is used solely to craft beacons.

Obtaining[edit]

Withers[edit]

The nether star can only be obtained by defeating the wither, which is a boss mob. One nether star will be dropped each time, and is not affected by the Looting enchantment.

Usage[edit]

The nether star has the same animated glint that enchanted items and potions have.

The dropped nether star cannot despawn or be destroyed by explosions. However, it can still be destroyed by fire, lava, and cacti.

It is used to craft a beacon.
