Blocks of Iron (also known as Iron Blocks) are blocks used for storing Iron Ingots, and they are sometimes used for decoration as well. They do not appear naturally, but they can be crafted from 9 Iron Ingots. Iron blocks have the same texture on all of its six sides.

Iron blocks can be made by placing nine iron ingots in a Crafting Table. The nine ingots can be recovered by placing the block in a crafting grid. This makes iron blocks more functional as "storage units" than as building units. Iron blocks can be mined with a stone, iron, or diamond pickaxe, and they will take about two seconds to destroy. If an iron block is broken without such a tool, it will drop nothing, and it will waste all of the nine ingots used. This block has lines going across it which makes the iron look corrugated. Iron blocks cannot burn down which makes it a smart choice when building a house; however, it may be more difficult to accumulate an appreciable amount of Iron in order to make the Blocks.

Iron blocks are required to build an Iron Golem which requires 4 Iron blocks in the shape of a T and a pumpkin on top of the middle block which must be placed last as well.

Trivia

  • The Block Of Iron has three diferent textures. In Minecraft Classic, it had a shadow on each face. In Minecraft Alpha, it changed to be a recolor of the texture of the Block of Gold and Block of Diamond. In the Beta 1.9 pre-release, stripes were added to the blocks' texture.
  • Prior to the Halloween Update, Block of Iron used to have different textured skin.
  • Four Iron Blocks and one pumpkin are used to make an Iron Golem.
