Light Block
First Appearance Bedrock Edition: 1.13.0 beta
Stackable Yes 64

The Light Block was announced at MINECON Live 2019 and added to Bedrock Edition in the 1.13.0 update. It can be used to provide a light level anywhere from 0 to 15.


Light blocks cannot be mined, or even targeted, similar to air. They do not attach to any block, meaning that breaking an adjacent block does not remove the light block. However, they can be broken by replacing them with another block.

Light blocks are not in the player's creative inventory. They can only be obtained using /give, with any data value from 0 to 15. This value determines the block's light level. The only way to obtain a light block is by entering the commands : /give @s light_block 15 1


  • You can place them in buildings for a less crowded area.
  • Light blocks can be pushed or pulled by pistons and can be detected by observers.
