Cracked Stone Bricks are a block that was implemented in the Beta 1.8 update, and added to the official game client as part of the Adventure Update.


Cracked stone bricks have an appearance that is similar to Stone Bricks, but with cracks throughout their surface. However, this does not affect the block-breaking speed. These blocks have no specific use in-game, other than acting as a decorative building block.

Cracked stone bricks are one of the blocks which Block 97 can resemble (the block which Silverfish can spawn from and return to).


Cracked stone bricks can be found within Strongholds and in igloos. They can also be created by smelting stone bricks in a Furnace.


  • During the Beta 1.8 pre-release, these blocks acted like mushroom cap blocks, which would display different textures based on the location.
  • Due to a bug in Beta 1.8, this block could be obtained by creating stone brick stairs and then mining the stairs, while not touching any Stone. They could also be collected while near Water, since mining during that stage of development worked differently.
  • In Creative mode, the command to give this item to a player is:
    /give <PlayerName> stonebrick <amount> 2.
