Obsidian is a black and dark purple Block. It has an extremely high Blast Resistance, second only to Bedrock. It can only be mined by using a Diamond Pickaxe.

Obtaining

Obsidian can spawn underground naturally when flowing Water meets a Lava source Block. It can also be created by the Player if they place Water onto Lava source blocks. Occasionally, Obsidian occurs naturally in Village blacksmith 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 let the Player obtain it.
  • Obsidian can be created when a Nether Portal is spawned in the Nether or the Overworld. This portal can then be mined, providing a renewable source of Obsidian.
  • An Obsidian Block takes about 7-8 seconds to mine with a Diamond Pickaxe.
  • Before Update 0.6.0, the structure created by activating the Nether Reactor was made out of Obsidian, but it was changed to Netherrack in Update 0.6.0.
  • Its blast resistance is 6000. This means TNT and Creepers can't damage it.
    • However, the Wither's explosion and blue skulls can destroy 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.
  • Obsidian is often confused with Blocks of Coal although the former has more of a purplish hue.
  • Obsidian cannot be pushed by Pistons, and is not moved by a Slime Block attached to a Piston.
  • The Player is advised to take caution when mining Obsidian in caves since there is often Lava underneath.
