What are Minecraft Blocks and how do you get them

There are many different kinds of Minecraft blocks, from basic dirt and sandstone to more exotic varieties like quartz and Nether rack.


Each type of block has its own unique characteristics and uses, making it important to understand which ones work best in different situations before committing to building with them.

You can customize the appearance and look of these Minecraft blocks by using Minecraft resource packs to make it look more customized to your appeal.

To help with this process, here is a list of some of the most common Minecraft blocks:

Natural Blocks

These blocks naturally occur in the world and are generated each time world is created.

Dirt: Most Minecraft blocks start off with dirt. It's the foundation of any Minecraft structure and is easily harvested with a shovel.

Sandstone: This type of block is often used for building walls and foundations because it can be crafted into different shapes and sizes. It also has excellent durability properties, making it an ideal choice for structures that will stand up to wear and tear over time.

Bedrock: This Minecraft block is the strongest in the game and can only be broken with an explosion or the /give command. Its incredible strength makes it perfect for foundations, walls or any other build where durability is key.

Ores and Minerals

Ore blocks require the use of a pickaxe if you want to mine these blocks

Coal Ore: Coal can be found pretty much everywhere and is a common sight in every map. A wooden pickaxe is the minimum requirement to mine coal.

Iron Ore: Iron ore can be found in all layers between 64 (sea level) and bedrock. They’re very easy to find and players will often ignore them once they have a decent supply of iron.

Gold Ore: Gold ores can be found in the bottom 32 layers and aren’t too difficult to find. Gold is used in many crafted items, including armor and tools, but their durability is very low.


Are blocks part of the natural world in Minecraft. They make up the trees, grass etc.

Cactus blocks: Cacti can only grow on sand, up to a height of 3 blocks. Cacti will hurt monsters and players who come into contact with it and can destroy any block that’s dropped onto it.

Dandelions: Yellow flowers (dandelions) can be found in every land biome with the exception of desert biomes.

Nether Blocks

These blocks are unique to the nether but can be taken to other dimensions.

Nether rack: Found in the Nether dimension, these blocks are made of solid Nether rack, making them extremely difficult to break and ideal for builds that need to last.

Glow stone block: These blocks emit light, just like torches, but have the added advantage of being able to be placed under water or in the flow of water.

The Power of Knowing All Minecraft Blocks

Once you know what type of Minecraft block is available, understanding how to get them can help ensure your Minecraft experience is maximized.

Most blocks can be mined directly from the Minecraft world using a pickaxe or shovel, but certain types like quartz or Nether rack require special tools such as an enchantment table or command blocks in order to obtain them.

Additionally, Minecraft players can explore naturally occurring structures such as dungeons or mineshafts to find rare blocks like gold ore and diamonds.

Minecraft also has a vast selection of items that can be crafted using specific materials - for example, an enchantment table requires bookshelves and obsidian blocks in order to be constructed.

Now that you have a better understanding of the Minecraft Blocks List and How to Get Them, you’re ready to get your build on! You can try to make some awesome Minecraft mansions too.

With so many different kinds of blocks available, there’s no limit to what kind of Minecraft constructions you can create.
