The Block of Iron is a mineral block made in the standard fashion from 9 Iron Ingots.


It has two uses: as a storage block or in Beacons. In the latter, it is the cheapest and therefore the best in Survival Mode. Iron Blocks are also useful for storing large amounts of iron in a small amount of space.,


Iron Blocks can only be obtained by Crafting them out of 9 Iron Ingots.


  • Blocks of Iron are often used to create a "science lab" feel.
