A Shulker Box is 27-slot craftable storage container, added in the The Exploration Update. It is based on the Shulker mob.


Compared with a regular Chest, a Shulker Box adds an extra level of convenience by remaining 'intact' (with all of the items still inside of it) when it is broken. It can be carried around with the items inside of it, and it can be placed in the world again with the items still inside of it as well.

A Shulker Box can be dyed a particular color by placing it in a Crafting Table with a dye of the player's choice.


In order to craft a Shulker Box, one must place two Shulker Shells above and below a Chest in the Crafting Table interface (as depicted below).

  • The Shulker Box cannot be crafted down the sides of the Crafting Table. The ingredients have to be down the middle.
  • Because the Shulker Box doesn't let the items inside of it come out when it is broken, it can be used as a 'backpack' in order to help with storage issues the player may have.
  • When the Shulker Box is opened, the opening animation is the same as the Shulker's attacking animation.
