Minecraft Block

Iron blocks can be made by placing nine iron ingots in a Crafting Table . The nine ingots can be recovered by placing the block in a crafting grid. This makes iron blocks more functional as "storage units" than as building units. Iron blocks can be mined with a stone, iron, or diamond pickaxe , taking about two seconds to destroy. If an iron block is broken without such a tool, it drops nothing, wasting all nine ingots. It has lines going across it making the iron look corrugated. Iron can not be burned down making it a smart choice when building a house although it may be more difficult.Iron blocks are also required to build an Iron Golem which requires 4 Iron blocks in a shape of a T and a pumpkin on top middle placed last.
