Desert wells are sandstone structures that generate in desert biomes.

Generation[]

Desert wells generate only in desert biomes. They have a 11000[JE only] or 1500[BE only] chance to be generated in any desert chunk. It is possible for a well to generate around a cactus. The well is considered a natural feature rather than a structure, and therefore it generates with the "Generate Structures" option disabled.[1]

In Bedrock Edition, desert wells have a chance to generate in a cluster between 16 blocks.

Desert well generation is capped at the coordinate Y-128. No desert well can generate on terrain higher than Y-128.

Structure[]

Main article: Desert well/Structure

Desert wells are built of sandstone blocks and slabs with a water source inside.
