Mossy Cobblestone is a block that was first introduced in Survival Test, and that remains in all later versions of Minecraft. It looks similar to cobblestone, but it has moss growing in its cracks. They primarily compose the floors of dungeons, jungle temples, and Moss Stone Boulders in giant tree taiga biome in collections of 30–64 blocks, but as of update 1.8, they can be crafted.

Uses

Unlike standard cobblestone, mossy cobblestone 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, more derelict or to make nether portals eerier. It can also be used to construct creeper-proof buildings, as both Mossy Cobblestone and its normal equivalent have the same blast resistance. Therefore, Mossy Cobblestone is a good blast-proof construction material.

Trivia

  • Mossy Cobblestone is also in Pocket Edition. However, it was only obtainable in Creative or with the use of mods prior to update 0.9.0, or if found in naturally generated structure such as dungeons.
  • Silverfish cannot enter these blocks, unlike its regular counterpart.
  • Mossy Cobblestone used to be called Moss Stone until the 1.13 update.
  • Prior to update 1.8, mossy cobblestone was very valuable, because it could only be obtained in jungle temples.
