Blackstone can be found as a part of bastion remnants.
Blobs of blackstone attempt to replace netherrack 2 times per chunk in blobs of size 0 to 160, from levels 5 to 31, in all Nether biomes except basalt deltas.
Blackstone can be used as a substitute for cobblestone in the Nether as it can be used to craft stone tools, brewing stands, and furnaces. It can also be used to repair stone tools using an anvil [Java Edition only]. It can also be used to craft polished blackstone.
