Concrete is a solid block available in the 16 regular dye colors.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Concrete requires a pickaxe to be mined. When mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

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

Post-generation[]

Concrete powder becoming solid concrete on contact with water. (Click for bigger image)

Concrete is formed when concrete powder comes into contact with a block of water (source block, flowing or waterlogged). It is not formed by contact with rain, filled cauldrons or water bottles.

Usage[]

The bright and solid colors of concrete make it useful for decoration. It has more pronounced colors than terracotta, and unlike wool, is not flammable.

As a building material, its hardness is slightly higher than stone, but its blast resistance is significantly lower.

Note Blocks[]

Concrete can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass drum" sound.

History[]

Java Edition
1.12January 27, 2017Jeb tweets a teaser image of a new brightly-colored solid block, shown along with the new wool palette colors.
January 27, 2017Jeb states that this is actually a new block, clearing popular rumors that the hardened clay texture was being changed.
February 2, 2017Jeb tweeted a video that showed concrete powder turning into a non-falling block when in water. This "wet" form of the block is concrete, though they were not confirmed to be the same at the time.
Jeb later added that 16 different colors are available.[1]

1.1317w47aThe different block states for the concrete ID have been split up into their own IDs.
Lava now turns concrete powder into concrete when coming into contact with said block, instead of converting concrete powder only when it fell into the lava's source block.[2]
Prior to The Flattening, this block's numeral ID was 251.

Trivia[]

  • In real life, a 1-cubic-meter concrete block (the size of a Minecraft block) is practically blast-proof, while the blast resistance of concrete in Minecraft is quite low.
