Moss Stone, also known as Mossy Cobblestone, is a Block that was first introduced in Survival Test, and it remains in all later versions of the game. It looks similar to Cobblestone, but it has moss growing in its cracks. They primarily compose the floors of Dungeons, Jungle Temples, and as boulders in Mega Taiga biomes, but as of update 1.8, they can be crafted.

Unlike standard cobblestone, moss stone cannot be smelted. They can, however, be crafted into a Mossy Cobblestone Wall. Their only use is in construction, and they are often used in combination with normal cobblestone for decoration purposes, such as to make buildings look older or to make Nether Portals more eerie.
- Moss stone can be found naturally in collections of 30–64 at a time in underground dungeons, as the main component of Jungle Temples and as boulders in the Mega Taiga Biome.
- Moss stone is also in Minecraft: Pocket Edition. However, it was only obtainable in Creative Mode or with the use of mods prior to update 0.9.0.
- Silverfish cannot enter these blocks, unlike its regular counterpart.
