Minecraft Block

Blocks of Gold (also known as Gold Block ) are Blocks made up of Gold Ingots . They do appear in normally generated maps in Ocean Monuments , where eight of them can be found. Gold Ingots can be obtained by smelting Gold Ore , and as a rare drop for killing Zombie Pigmen in The Nether .Blocks of Gold can be crafted by placing 9 Gold Ingots with a Crafting Table , and can then be crafted back into 9 Gold Ingots again, making them more useful as storage blocks. 8 Blocks of Gold and an Apple are needed to make a Golden Apple . However, it is possible to make a less-useful Golden Apple with Gold Ingots instead, by turning one Block of Gold into nine Gold Ingots.
