cobblestone Minecraft Block

Minecraft Block

Cobblestone , the cracked product of mined Stone , is one of the most common Blocks in Minecraft , being found either by mining ordinary stone, or in dungeons that have been generated by the game, along with Moss Stone . It can also be found in strongholds, villages, and jungle temples. Cobblestone doesn't have physics applied to it, so it makes a very good construction material and is used to craft a Furnace . It can be smelted in a furnace to turn it back into Stone . Once Cobblestone is smelted, it becomes considerably weaker than it was before.
