- Charcoal has the same texture as coal
- The only difference in functionality between coal and charcoal is that coal can be used to craft the coal block while charcoal cannot.
- Charcoal requires one piece of fuel to be made, however it smelts 8 items, meaning it smelts more than it costs to make.
