Stone bricks and the variants Cracked stone bricks, Mossy stone bricks, and Chiseled stone bricks are materials found in structures such as strongholds, igloo basements, jungle temples, and ocean ruins.

Natural generation[edit]

Regular, cracked, and mossy stone bricks generate as part of strongholds, making up most of the walls, ceilings, and floors.

All four variants also generate in ocean ruins.

Three blocks of chiseled stone bricks generate as part of each jungle temple.

Igloo basements are lined with stone brick, cracked at eye level and mossy at foot level, with chiseled brick along the floor and ceiling.

A single regular stone brick spawns in some snowy tundra villages.

Obtaining[edit]

Stone bricks can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, they drop nothing.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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 fractures, which could make the stone bricks crack; or simply melting the cobblestone so it reforms into igneous stone.
