Solid Coal, Copper, Iron, and Diamond Blocks

Today I just want to discuss each solid block in a bit of detail. Enjoy :)

Solid Diamond Block

  • Stackable to 4 - the equivalent to 36 diamonds. 
  • Flammable
  • Explosion Resilience - 4500
  • Uses: Decoration or expensive building material
  • Disadvantages: Must be kept safe from lighting, magma, and fire.

Solid Iron Block
  • Stackable to 4 - the equivalent to 36 ingots.
  • Not flammable
  • Explosion Resilience - 1000
  • Uses: Decoration or expensive building material.
Solid Iron Block

Solid Copper Block
  • Stackable to 4 - the equivalent to 36 ingots.
  • Not flammable
  • Explosion Resilience - 1500
  • Uses: Decoration or expensive building material.

Solid Coal Block
  • Stackable to 4 - the equivalent to 36 chunks.
  • Flammable - Burns for days
  • Explosion Resilience - 40
  • Uses: Heating homes, fuel for furnace.
  • Disadvantages - Must be kept safe from lighting, magma, and fire.

All of these blocks are very inefficient if you are making them to save inventory space. They only stack to 4, and each one requires 9 of the raw material. 9(4)=36, but each ore will stack to 40. So you should really only make them if you plan to use them as decor/building material.

Solid Diamond and Coal blocks are flammable, so unless you WANT them to burn, they need to be kept safe.

Solid Coal blocks can be used as fuel for the furnace, but it is again, inefficient. One solid coal block has a fuel value of 600, but just 7 coal chunks have a fuel value of 720!! They do, however, offer a lot of heat (and they burn for a LONG time) when Heating Your House.


Hope this helped better your understanding of each solid block :)
