End Stone, also known as Death Stone, White Stone, Ender Stone, Dark Stone, and Dragon Stone, is a block which is only found in The End along with Obsidian, and has a texture similar to that of a beehive or a yellow cobblestone. End stone is only obtainable with a Pickaxe. In the End, players could make an unbreakable shelter because the Enderdragon cannot destroy end stone, but it would break anything a player placed inside, as it phases through. It is mainly used as expensive decorations, or Creeper resistant houses. End stone has the highest blast resistance of any block that can be blown up easily (45).
- End stone is the only block (along with obsidian and Bedrock) that cannot be destroyed by an ender dragon. Endermen cannot pick these up, either.
- In earlier versions of Minecraft, players needed the Silk Touch enchantment to obtain end stone, because it would drop cobblestone without the enchantment.
- End stone's texture is actually Cobblestone's texture, but with inverted colors.
- End stone appears to be used in the End Portal's frame blocks; the upper half appears to have changed, so Eyes of Ender may fit in them.
- End stone has the 3rd highest blast resistance in-game. (2nd being obsidian and the 1st being bedrock. It has a higher blast resistance than regular Stone thus making it ideal in blast resistant structures if obsidian farming is inconvenient.
- End stone actually used to be white, with the same texture.
- When the ender dragon is re-spawned, which is a renewable process, the end stone under the edges of the portal is regenerated, making the block renewable.
