Sea Lanterns are blocks found in Ocean Monuments. They can also be crafted with four Prismarine Shards and five Prismarine Crystals. When mined with a tool not enchanted with Silk Touch, they will drop 2-3 Prismarine Crystals. A Fortune enchantment helps to increase this chance, but will not reward the Prismarine Shards required in its crafting.

Sea Lanterns emit a light level of 15, as bright as Glowstone, Jack o'Lanterns, Beacons or Lava.

How to obtain

  • Mine with Silk Touch from Ocean Monuments
  • Craft


  • Sea Lanterns have reduced light emission underwater, despite being of aquatic origin.
  • Sea Lanterns and Prismarine are the only solid blocks to have an animated texture.
  • Sea Lanterns are the only uses for Prismarine Crystals.
