Non-solid block


Light Level 7

Tool Used



Yes (Up To 64)



First Appearance

Update 0.13.0

Redstone Torch is a Block that provides light and is used in Redstone circuits as a power source. It was added in Update 0.13.0 as part of Redstone Phase 1.

It provides a light level of 7, meaning Hostile Mobs can spawn. Redstone Torches can be inverted by connecting them to a lit Redstone wire, which means no light will be provided.



  • A Redstone Torch will 'burn-out' if turned on and off too many times in a short period of time.
    • Burnt out Redstone Torches do not give out light.
    • However, if a Redstone Torch gets 'burnt-out,' it can be broken and re-placed as a normal Redstone Torch.
    • After a given time period, in some cases the redstone circuit will restart.
  • The only Light dimmer than Redstone Torches is the light from the Monster Spawner.
  • Players use Redstone Torches to make houses spooky and scary.
  • Redstone Torches can be used to move a Redstone signal up or down, creating 'redstone ladders'.
  • Redstone Torches will ignite TNT when placed beside it.
  • Redstone Torches, when viewed from above, look like normal Torches.
  • As of Update 1.0, Redstone Torches spawn naturally inside Igloos.
  • Since Mobs don't spawn in Redstone Torches, the Player can place a Redstone Torch to verify if a block has sufficient light level. If the light doesn't change when placed, Mobs will not spawn.
