Ender dragon egg
The ender dragon egg appears in a chest when the ender dragon is killed. It currently can only be used for display.
The egg is obtainable after defeating the ender dragon. When defeated you will have to find it in a chest along with 16 diamonds.
If it is hit by the player, it will teleport, so the only way to collect it once placed is to push it with a piston, which drops it as an item, or to make it fall onto a non solid block like a torch, which also causes it to break.
The ender dragon egg has no purpose currently other than to be a symbol of your victory over the ender dragon.
It is affected by gravity.
If the player hits or shift clicks on the egg, it will teleport away. It can teleport in both horizontal and vertical directions.
