Obsidian is a black and dark purple block. It has a high blast resistance, second only to Bedrock. It can only be mined by using a Diamond Pickaxe. It is possible to mine Obsidian with any other pickaxe, however, it won't be obtained.

Obtaining

Obsidian can spawn underground naturally when flowing water meets a lava source block. It can also be created by the player by a similar method. It also naturally occurs in Village chests.

Crafting

Other Uses

Obsidian can be used to create a Nether Portal, by placing it in a 4x5 to 23x23 block formation and lighting it with Flint and Steel.

Trivia

  • When Mining Obsidian with a pickaxe other than diamond, It takes longer to break and it doesn't even let you obtain it.
  • An Obsidian Block takes about 7-8 seconds to mine with a Diamond Pickaxe.
  • Before 0.5.0, the structure created by activating the Nether Reactor was made out of Obsidian but was later changed to Netherrack
  • Its blast resistance is 6000, making it the second most blast resistant block. This means TNT and Creepers can't damage it.
  • Before Update 0.12.1, Obsidian could be only used to protect a structure or a player from an explosion. It could also be used for decorational purposes.
