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

Mechanics

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. When it is pushed by a piston, it will be destroyed, but when it is dispensed by a dispenser, it will be placed, thus allowing redstone-powered shulker box "replacement systems" (with pistons, hoppers and dispensers) that cycles through various shulker boxes.

A shulker box can be dyed a particular color by placing it in a crafting table with a dye of a player's choice.

Trivia

  • The shulker box cannot be crafted down the sides of the Crafting Table. The ingredients have to be down the middle.
  • A shulker box cannot be placed inside a shulker box.
  • When the shulker box is opened, the opening animation is the same as the shulker's attacking animation.
