Cobblestone is a common block, obtained from mining stone. It is mainly used for crafting or as a building block.

Obtaining[]

Cobblestone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it drops itself. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing. Its hardness is greater than stone so it requires more time to break, especially with anything other than a pickaxe.

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Cobblestone is dropped by stone when mined without Silk Touch, and also by infested cobblestone when mined with Silk Touch.

Natural generation[]

Cobblestone occurs naturally in dungeons, jungle temples, pillager outposts, underwater ruins, strongholds, plains, taiga and snowy tundra villages, and woodland mansions.

Post-generation[]

When water and flowing lava come into contact, the flowing lava is replaced by cobblestone. However, if the lava flows on top of the water from above, stone is created instead. Non-flowing lava (a lava source block) turns into obsidian upon contact with water, thus the requirement of flowing lava.

Usage[]

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

Silverfish[]

Silverfish can enter and hide in cobblestone, creating an infested block.
