End Stone, also known as Death Stone, White Stone, Ender Stone, Dark Stone, and Dragon Stone; is a block only found in The End along with Obsidian, and has a texture similar to that of a beehive. End Stone is only obtainable with a Pickaxe. In the End, you could make an unbreakable shelter; the Enderdragon cannot destroy End Stone, but it would break anything you 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 (45).
- End Stone is the only block (along with Obsidian and Bedrock) that cannot be destroyed by an Enderdragon. Endermen cannot pick these up, either.
- In earlier versions of Minecraft, you 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 it may fit Eyes of Ender.
- 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.
