Smoothstone and Iron Blocks also don't get destroyed[edit]

Cobble is not the only one immune to fireballs. Else my base would be in ruins from all the ghasts trying to kill me -Icalasari 06:20, 1 November 2010 (UTC)


Seems the text about the L-shape on cobblestone pointing to North gets deleted pretty often, why couldn't the article mention this? It's very distinctive and easy to remember. Hiski 18:44, 19 December 2010 (CST)

That's because most if not all blocks have an identifier, and there is a page for all this stuff, Navigation. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 02:28, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
I think it should be here; the navagation page does not actually explain how to do it. It just points to a video. A lot faster to have one line that says 'The default skin has an L at the northwest corner' than to have to load a video, which may be removed at some point. Not to mention, without knowing about the navigation page, I wouldn't know to look for it there. And neither the page nor the video mention using redstone dust. --StarChaser Tyger 16:59, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Then put them on there! –ultradude25 (T|C) at 17:52, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
As Hiski mentioned, it keeps getting removed for some reason. A load of the last 20 or so edits were it being put in and taken out again. Better to see if there's a reason more compelling than 'I don't like it'. --StarChaser Tyger 05:23, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
The navigation page doesn't even have 20 edits... let alone them being all taken out again. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 06:02, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
The L-shape is merely a coincidence, although it became rather significant. I do not, however support having this information on this page since every single block type should have some way of doing the same thing, although it might not be too obvious. Besides, this L-shape formation is also present in Moss Stone and Netherrack. As ultradude25 said, this information is already in the Navigation page. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Scykei (Talk|Contribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
I was talking about this page's 20 edits. This information is not already on the navigation page, as I said above. It points to a minute long video that takes 30 seconds to get to the point, on a website that is notorious for losing videos. What is the unreasoning hatred of one simple line of text? Putting it on the navigation page is only useful if you already know to look for it there. It makes more sense to have it here, and on the other blocks that use the same skin. --StarChaser Tyger 13:26, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
Possible solution: if navigating via Cobblestone is truly common enough to list it, simply mention this and link to the Navigation page, where the details of navigating via Cobblestone should then be described properly. Zbeeblebrox 06:52, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Natural Cobblestone?[edit]

Cobblestone is naturally occurring, so should it be placed in the Natural section of the Blocks box at the bottom? Bigreader 04:06, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Should it be natural? It's 'manufactured' with the pickaxe. Is there naturally occuring Cobblestone? jackftwcod5 00:00 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Cobblestone occurs in an unmodified map in:

  • the walls of dungeons. The blocks which occur in dungeons are Cobblestone, Monster Spawner, Chest, and Moss Stone; perhaps either all or none of these blocks should be listed. Dungeons should perhaps be a “natural artificial” exception, since chests, for example, do appear in world generation but they're not part of the "normal" world elements.
  • where water runs into lava (most often seen at the lava-everywhere depth). This is a consequence of physics rather than the exact initial world generation.

KPReid 23:21, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Due to the fact that Cobblestone found in Dungeons and Villages can only spawn with the "Generate Structures" setting on, I don't believe these should be counted. Furthermore, as KPReid said, Cobblestone as a result of lava and water is not part of spawning mechanics and is rather a consequence of physics. It is my personal opinion that Cobblestone is not a "natural" block. NightstormKitty 21:55, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Cobblestone and Ghast fireball[edit]

The page states under trivia that cobble is indestructible by a ghast fireball. I have seen a ghast blow up cobblestone. I feel that this is an error and should be removed.

I've seen that too. Cobblestone is resistant to ghasts, but not immune. It is possible for more than 1 fireball to hit the cobblestone at once, destroying it. I will re-word that line. Btw, sign your posts with ~~~~. --Zkyo 16:50, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

New texture[edit]

The upcoming 1.7 update will contain a new cobblestone texture, highlighted in Jens' recent demonstration video. At what point would it make sense to put that in the article? Zbeeblebrox 06:54, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Beta 1.7: Cobblestone too bright?[edit]

Cobblestone will be very bright in the new update! But does that look like minecraft? Looks more like silver ore in Terraria! A brighter Cobblestone-Texture would be great! But really THAT bright?

To be honest, I prefer the older more 'darker' versions of Cobblestone over the more recent ones, due to the fact that it didn't look so...dark and actually cool to build with. That's the only thing that I've come across to have EVER modded in Miencraft (aside from my playerskin, but that doesn't really count) because it's one of the few things that looks actually nostalgic to the original versions of the game. I don't think it's Terraria bright,'s too bright to me as well.

K12machinima 9:13, August 20, 2011

Agreed, I think it's too bright, BUT this discussion should not be on the wiki. Timberdoodle 17:29, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Stone from a cobblestone generator[edit]

On my 1.2.3 map, I built a cobblestone generator and instead of the water-lava meeting point producing cobblestone, stone was produced instead. Is this a strange bug, or is this new to 1.2.3? -- 01:00, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Its not a bug . In fact, when 1.0 was released , they added this feature. But if you arrange the water differently, you will get cobblestone or obsidian. -- 19:05, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Cobblestone becoming Smooth stone[edit]

Even w/o a furnace, cobblestone near most smooth stone makes it become back to smooth stone. Is this a plan or a bug or none? --Minecraftaddict154 03:15, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Example: Minecraftaddict154 03:20, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Lava over Water in PE[edit]

Instead of generating with lava above water, it generates . Help fix this bug for more range of . Minecraftaddict154 03:23, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

This was fixed in 0.8.0. 15:14, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Split Pages[edit]

Cobblestone can be used for furnaces, while mossy cobblestone cannot, among other differences. In my opinion, they should be split apart so if new players need to see how to craft, say, a furnace, they can go the cobblestone page to find it. Same with mossy cobblestone. If you wanted to see where they spawned, you can go to the mossy cobblestone page to find your information. You might think I’m ridiculous, but again, this is what I think. — 17:16, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Literally nothing changed about either cobblestone or mossy cobblestone since this discussion, which was clear nobody opposed: Talk:Mossy Cobblestone/Archive 1#Merge into Cobblestone FVbico (talk) 17:34, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
For reference, I would prefer these pages split. Looking through the previous discussion, one argument was that mossy cobblestone is analogous to mossy stone bricks. However, cobblestone is a more versatile block than mossy cobblestone; whereas the stone brock types are primarily for building. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 04:01, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Mossy cobblestone should have seperate page as there also blackstone which can be used to craft furnace and stone tools, but has its own page. ImakerB (talk) 23:36, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
 Agree with ImakerB. Mossy cobblestone is obtained in ways similar to cobblestone (found in structures, or crafted from cobblestone and vines). Blackstone is used in similar ways to cobblestone. Mossy cobblestone and blackstoneare less similar to each other than they are to cobblestone; they can be used to make slabs and stairs, but so can many other materials. It seems arbitrary which to merge with cobblestone, so why merge them at all? Not to mention that cobblestone is primarily obtained by mining normal stone and can be obtained by combining water with flowing lava. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 00:51, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
 Support splitting for the reasons above. — Thomanski | t | c | 13:53, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
 Weak Support Not sure if stone bricks should be split, too, by that logic. Splitting mossy stone bricks as well, means that the chiseled variant would get its own page as well. ---- Elite hog (talk) 15:30, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
 Support I agree. RosilloGames (talk) 08:01, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
 Neutral. I'm fine with the split if it happens but I don't really care. I think they have enough similarities to justify them being on the same page, but I also think that they are different enough to stand on their own. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 00:57, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
 Support I Agree. Dejvoss (talk) 12:59, 2 May 2020 (UTC)
 Support I Agree. Partition5896 (talk) 22:52, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

I think we should split it soon. There is almost no opposition whatsoever. I would like to add to my proposal statement that it might improve searchability as well. — 16:13, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

 Neutral Can we Please Decide this it is exactly Stone and Smooth Stone Foxygamer23546475 (talk)
Stone and Smooth Stone have separate pages. Also, those blocks are irrelevant right now. — 11:43, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
Was split by Elite hog. — 15:27, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
