Redstone Lamp
Redstone Lamp (off/On)




Light level 15








Yes (64)

First Appearance

Update 0.13.0

Redstone Lamps are Redstone-related Blocks that were added in Update 0.13.0. When on they provide a light level of 15. They are gold in color when switched on, but brown when switched off.



Redstone Lamps turns on when connected directly to a Redstone signal, or to a powered block. In addition when it is in the on state it becomes a powered block itself, capable of activating other devices around it including other Lamps.

Do however note that whilst an activated Redstone Lamps will light up, only directly powered Redstone Lamp will activate adjacent Redstone Lamps.


  • A Redstone Lamp does not allow light to pass through it.
  • Like most light sources, it can melt Ice and Snow.
  • Redstone Lamps have the same light level as Glowstone, Sun, Fire, Lava and Sea Lanterns.
  • It makes the same sound as Glass, Glowstone, and Ice when broken.
    • But, unlike Glass, Glowstone, and Ice, when a Redstone Lamp is mined, it will yield its block.
  • The "on" state of the lamp has a separate block ID, and the Player can obtain it through inventory editors.
    • However, it has a missing texture in the Inventory.
  • An inverted Daylight Sensor on top of a Redstone Lamp makes a simple street light activated by night fall.
