Elements and isotopes are blocks that are essential to chemistry in Bedrock and Education editions.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

An element can be broken instantly with any item, always dropping itself.

Element constructor[]

Elements and isotopes are primarily obtained by constructing them in the element constructor. This is done by moving the sliders or typing in numbers into the text inputs. The large display shows the selected numbers of particles arranged in an atomic structure, whether valid or not. If the atomic structure is a stable isotope, it can be taken out of the slot on the right side. A list of stable isotopes can be found below.

Material reducer[]

Several elements can also be obtained from a material reducer, which breaks down blocks into their component elements by percentage. This is the only way of obtaining the Unknown element; a mysterious element found in certain Minecraft blocks, such as soul sand and netherrack.

Because the element constructor and material reducer cannot be obtained in Survival without commands, and the world must have “Education Edition” enabled, the same is true for elements. In Bedrock Edition, the “Education Edition” option also allows elements to be obtained directly via commands or Creative inventory.

Trivia[]

  • Element is the only block that by default uses a texture with a resolution greater than 16×16 (not counting animated blocks).
  • Many of the "stable" isotopes provided by the element constructor are radioactive in real life. For example, Technetium has no stable isotopes in real life, even though it has three stable isotopes in Minecraft.
  • If one block is considered to be equal to one meter cubed, and element blocks are considered to be composed of solely the element they are named after, then one block of osmium would have a mass of 22,590 kilograms, making it the heaviest real-world matter available in vanilla Minecraft.
    • Hassium, however, is predicted to have a density almost twice that of osmium, with a block of hassium weighing 40,700 kilograms.
