Stone is one of the most common blocks in the game. It makes up most of the Overworld.

Natural generation

In the Overworld, stone generates only a couple of blocks below the surface in most biomes. It then carries on until the bottom of the world. Stone can be replaces by caves, ores, gravel veins, dungeons, the J block, and the bedrock borders spawned at the edges of the world.


Stone can be made by smelting cobblestone in the furnace. Since cobblestone is a renewable resource, stone therefore is renewable too.

A backdrop version of the Stone block can be obtained by placing the stone itself anywhere on the crafting grid. Backdrop blocks have no collision and are slightly darker than the original block. These type of blocks also occupy the space for any other foreground block too, so its only purpose is for decorating empty (or air-filled) space. To remove it, it must be replaced by another block by putting anything else in the same place or mined while holding another backdrop block.

Placing the stone backdrop block into the crafting grid will give the original stone block back.
