The entries on this annotated, structured list of rocks all are items and blocks in Minecraft that:

  1. bear a resemblance to real-world rocks,
  2. share a name with real-world rocks, or
  3. are fictitious but fulfill a similar role to rocks.

A few fictitious blocks are included in this list; namely, blackstone, deepslate, end stone, glowstone, netherrack, and redstone. Their actual nature is up to the player's imagination. These blocks are marked in the list with an asterisk(*) before their name.
