This grey stalwart is one of the original Minecraft blocks, added alongside dirt and wood planks on [May 16, 2009], while the game was in its very earliest stages of development. In fact, it's almost as old as the name "Minecraft" itself – before that date, the game was simply known as "Cave Game", while afterwards it became "Minecraft: Order of the Stone".

Duncan Geere[1]

Stone is a block found underground in the Overworld or on mountains.

Occurrence[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Stone makes up the majority of the solid blocks generated. When chunks generate, stone can be found under 1-5 layers of grass, dirt, sandstone, clay or terracotta in biomes.

When the world is generating new chunks, some stone becomes mineral veins, and almost every cavern and mineshaft generates at stone level.

Post-generation[edit]

A simple stone generator.

Stone can also be made by lava flowing on top of water. The water is replaced with stone.

Obtaining[edit]

Stone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it drops cobblestone. When mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing. If stone is mined with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe, it drops itself.
