A Pickaxe is a tool used to mine blocks wielding the stone configuration and ores in any Minecraft world. While they are not needed to break Stone outside of Adventure Mode, pickaxes are able to do so with much less time than by hand alone. They are required to gather stone resources for crafting and building, as well as gathering mineral resources such as Iron Ore and Coal. Pickaxes can also be used to gather other blocks, but they aren't as effective. As with all types of tools, there are various types of Enchantments available for the pickaxe. Of all the tools, the pickaxe is the tool that deals the third highest amount of damage when compared to other tools of the same composition.

Speed and Durability

The following table shows the time it takes to break each type of block. A block marked with a red background indicates that it cannot be harvested by that certain pickaxe and the block will be destroyed. A green background indicates the quickest tool types for the corresponding block. Note that some blocks will not drop anything regardless of the tool used.

Trivia

  • In Abandoned Mineshafts, NPC Villages, and Strongholds, iron pickaxes can be found inside the chests.
  • All blocks can be mined with a Pickaxe except for Bedrock and End Portal Frame. The speed and efficiency of any type of block or ore to be mined depends on the type of pickaxe being used.
  • A wooden pickaxe must be the first type of pickaxe created when first starting a new world.
  • Gold pickaxes can mine quickly, but their durability is very low compared to other picks.
  • There is a rare glitch were, when a pickaxe breaks, it will instantly re-appear in your inventory, This can be fixed by simply quitting the map and then re-opening it.
