A block of Ice






Yes (64)



Tools Used

Pickaxe (Silk Touch Enchantment)

First Appearance

Update 0.8.0

Ice is a Block that spawns naturally in Cold Biomes. It allows the Player to walk faster on it, and the Player will slide if he/she stops moving. It converts into Water when broken/melted if there is a block beneath it, specifically stationary water.

When broken, it makes the same sound as Glass.


Ice spawns naturally in cold biomes; however, it cannot be obtained by breaking it with normal Tools. It can only be obtained by breaking it using a tool Enchanted with Silk Touch.


  • Packed Ice is a non-meltable variant of Ice found only in Ice Spikes biomes, and is more translucent.
  • Ice will melt if any illuminating block is placed nearby, or if it is placed in a sunny biome.
  • Ice will melt in the Nether but it will not release water.
  • Version Exclusive: Ice is not transparent in Minecraft PE.
    • However, it still lets light through.
    • When a Carpet is placed on Ice and the Player drops an Item onto the Ice, it will still slide on top of the carpet above the ice.
