</noinclude> Blue ice is a block similar to packed ice, except for its darker shade of blue, and more slippery surface.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Mobs and players slide across the surface of blue ice more quickly than packed ice, they also slide further. Items within a stream of water travel quicker across the surface of this ice as well. Blue ice is otherwise functionally identical to packed ice.

In Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, blue ice emits a light level of 1.


Sources[edit | edit source]

Blue ice can be found on icebergs. It can also be crafted by combining 9 packed ice in a crafting table (see below). Upon the release of update 1.14, it can be sold by wandering traders in exchange for emeralds, and will appear in the villages of Snowy Tundra Biomes.

Mining[edit | edit source]

Blue Ice can be mined with any tool or by hand, but a pickaxe is the fastest. A pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch is required to harvest the block.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If Blue Ice is mined with a tool that is not enchanted with Silk Touch, the resource can't be gathered.
  • Like packed ice and unlike ice, blue ice will not melt if a light source is nearby.
