Duncan Geere Mojang avatar.png Cobblestone, as you’ll know if you’ve played Minecraft for more than about ten seconds, is what you get when you break stone. As a result, it’s one of the substances in the game that will fill up your storage chests faster than a diamond pick chews through sugarcane. The glut of cobblestone you obtain in the course of normal play, combined with its blast resistance, is why it’s usually the favoured building material of anyone who builds for function rather than aesthetics.
Duncan Geere[1]

Cobblestone is a common block, obtained from mining stone. Its texture resembles block of stone with a largely cracked surface. Cobblestone is mainly used for crafting or as a common building block.

Obtaining

Cobblestone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it will drop itself. If mined without a pickaxe, then the mining will be slower and it will drop nothing.

Stone

If stone is mined with a pickaxe that is not enchanted with silk touch, it will drop cobblestone.

Natural generation

Cobblestone occurs naturally in dungeons, strongholds, villages, jungle temples, underwater ruins and woodland mansions.

Water and lava

See also: Tutorials/Cobblestone farming

When water and flowing lava come into contact, the flowing lava is replaced with cobblestone. However, if the lava flows on top of the water from above, stone will be created instead.

Usage

Cobblestone can be used as a basic building block, as it is highly blast resistant and fairly common.

Silverfish

Silverfish have the ability to enter and hide in cobblestone, creating a monster egg.
