This article is about the Java Edition. For other editions, see Version history. All worlds with minecraft finding iron ore dirt blocks will seamlessly change over to coarse dirt, as it uses the same block ID and data value as the original grassless dirt block.
Slightly darker texture than regular dirt. Silk touch is not required for obtaining it in survival. Tilling coarse dirt with a hoe will turn it to regular dirt. 2 checkered pattern yields four coarse dirt.
Can be crafted with prismarine shards. The cracks in prismarine appear to slowly change color between brown, blue, gray and purple. Can be crafted with prismarine shards and an ink sac. Can be crafted into chiseled, smooth, stair and slab forms. Chiseled variant has a wither pattern to complement the creeper pattern found in chiseled sandstone. Slabs have a smooth variant, similar to stone and sandstone.
Generated only in Mesa biomes at cave entrances. Can be crafted with prismarine shards and prismarine crystals. Emit light at a light level of 15 and have a subtle animated texture. Smelting a wet sponge yields a dry sponge. When smelted, they will fill empty buckets in the fuel slot with water if possible.
Emits water dripping particles while placed. Dropped by elder guardians on player kills. Can be crafted back into 9 slime balls. Players and mobs that land on their top side will bounce, like on a trampoline. Bounce rebound velocity is scaled by impact velocity. Does not affect falling item entities.
Walking on it is slower than walking on soul sand and close to one’s speed while sneaking. Can be mined with only one click, without any tools in survival. Slime blocks will push and pull each other, along with adjacent blocks, when at least one of them is moved by a sticky piston. Normal pistons will have the same effect, except that they fail to pull even a single slime block. Non-movable blocks are not obstructing the path. Not a single slime block in the chain is attached to the piston itself. The color of wool represents the base color.
Other patterns are achieved with specific items. Over a quadrillion possible combinations, counting rotations and visually identical patterns due to occlusion. The layers show in the order they were created. Custom banners with more than six layers are possible using commands. Top-most layer can be removed using cauldrons. This removes a third of the water of a full cauldron. Can be placed on walls or on the ground.
