Sapling inventory

The Block of Coal is a block that was added in the 13w18a snapshot. Like other blocks of its kind, it is a compact way to store the material. It may also be used as a building block. However, it is less appealing than other compacted ores.

Uses

In addition to compact storage, the block of coal is also a better material to use during longer smelting operations than its resourse-equivilent, 9 coal , which smelts 72 items compared to 80 items.

Trivia

  • Being able to smelt 80 items, the coal block is the second best fuel source, and by far the best fuel source whith a full stack used (because the best fuel source is unstackable).
  • When first introduced in Minecraft 1.6 snapshots, it had a recolored "Block of Redstone" texture, which was soon changed to what is it now.
  • Coal blocks were also implemented in the Minecraft 2.0 April Fools update.
