Data Values are used to distinguish certain blocks and items by giving each one a unique value and id. Some blocks, such as Diorite, Andesite, and Granite, share the same values; however, there is a notable difference between them which is usually in the following form: 11, 12, and so on.

There are two different types of ids which are block ids and item ids. Block ids are the ids used for blocks while item ids are the ids that are usually associated with items. There are also two different types of values which are hex values and dec values. Hex values, or hexadecimal values, and dec values, or decimal values, are types of data values that are usually used in coding and programming.


 c  Requires additional data to define color
 B Requires additional data to define a property


The following table is a list of every block and item ID in the computer edition of Minecraft.

Block Data

The following information includes information about the certain data values that determine a block's color, growth (used for certain types of plants such as Wheat), and to distinguish certain types of blocks that are grouped in the same group.


These values determine a block's color.

Decimal Data value Hexadecimal Data value Color
0 0 White
1 1 Orange
2 2 Magenta
3 3 Light Blue
4 4 Yellow
5 5 Lime
6 6 Pink
7 7 Gray
8 8 Light Gray
9 9 Cyan
10 A Purple
11 B Blue
12 C Brown
13 D Green
14 E Red
15 F Black


Crops use block data values 1–7 for crop growth, however, some only have 4 textures, but they have multiple values per texture.


Tallgrass uses block data value 0 for shrub (looks like dead bush), 1 for grass, and 2 for fern.
