For other redstone-related objects in Minecraft, see Redstone (disambiguation).

A Redstone block is both a decorative and a functional block.

Mechanics

Redstone blocks have all the properties of a normal block. However, they also serve a similar purpose to that of Redstone Torches, except that they can be placed on ceilings, float in midair, and cannot be shut off. They are mainly used in toggle switches or "T Flip Flop Switches" where they can be used to make a button function like a lever.


Crafting

A block of redstone can be crafted with 9 pieces of redstone.
