A Block of Gold is a decorative Block, made of 9 Gold Ingots.

Sources

Blocks of Gold appear naturally in Ocean Monuments, where eight of them can be found. They can also be obtained by smelting Gold Ore, and they are sometimes dropped after killing a Zombie Pigman in The Nether.

Mechanics

Gold is susceptible to destruction from TNT, and it only requires approximately 3 seconds to mine successfully. As with most mineral blocks, an Iron or Diamond Pickaxe is required.

Crafting

Blocks of Gold can be crafted by placing 9 Gold Ingots within a Crafting Table. A block of gold can be split back into 9 Gold Ingots by placing the block in a crafting table making them useful as storage blocks. 8 Blocks of Gold and an Apple are needed to make an Enchanted Golden Apple (no longer works). It is possible to make a more economical Golden Apple by using Gold Ingots instead, but these are not as powerful.
