|Eye of Ender|
|Data Values||Hex: 17D|
The Eye of Ender, otherwise known as Ender Eyes, is a item that can be crafted by using an Ender Pearl and Blaze Powder. An Eye of Ender is a crafted item the player can use to repair an End Portal Frame block or locate a nearby Stronghold (the only location End Portals can be found in naturally) by right-clicking. The Eye of Ender is capable of floating through the ground, and into the Stronghold. It is even possible for it to float straight into the End Portal.

When an Eye of Ender is thrown, it will float diagonally upwards for about 15 blocks in the direction of the nearest Stronghold, emitting a trail of purple particles. Eyes of Ender will float in the air approximately three seconds before either falling back to the ground as a collectable item or shattering (explosion of particles) and returning to The End (disappearing). When the player throws an Eye of Ender within around 20 blocks of a stronghold, the Eye of Ender thrown will float towards the ground. An eye of ender can be thrown in creative mode.
- The Eye of Ender was first added as an item in Beta 1.9 Pre-release 3, but had no use until the 4th Pre-release, when each Eye could be placed in a portal block or used to home in on a Stronghold.
- In the beta version of Minecraft, the Eye of Ender looked slightly larger when viewed in 3rd person view.
- Eye of Enders are green, and before Beta 1.9 pre-release, an Enderman's eyes used to be green, so this may have some coincidence.
- Contrary to Ender Pearls, Eyes of Enders can be thrown in creative mode.
