Honeycomb blocks are entirely decorative. Because they cannot be crafted back into honeycombs, they cannot to be used to store honeycombs in bulk.


  • While real-life honeycombs are based on a hexagonal tiling, the honeycomb block appears to be more akin to a square tiling, likely to fit in with the square/cubic theme of the game.
  • Honeycomb blocks on Bedrock Edition used to be crafted with 9 honeycombs.
  • Like the Block of Quartz and Magma Block, honeycomb blocks can't be crafted back into the material it was made with.
