Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Being able to smelt 80 items, the coal block is the second best fuel source, and by far the best fuel source with a full stack used (5,120 items per stack). It's only second to a bucket of lava.
- When first introduced in Minecraft 1.6 snapshots, it had a recolored "Block of Redstone" texture, which was soon changed to what is was later, then retextured again.
- Coal blocks were also implemented in the Minecraft 2.0 April Fools update.
- Coal blocks cannot be seen in light level 3 or below. This is the same with black concrete.
