- Before Update 0.13.0, the Stonecutter was used to craft the Stone variants.
- Mobs cannot spawn on slabs.
- Slabs are also called Half Slabs or Half Blocks.
- Slabs are a little smaller than End Portal Frames.

- Stone Slabs are found naturally on Blacksmith roofs in Villages.
- If a block is placed on top of a Slab, it will appear to be floating.
- Placing Slabs under Water will create an Airlock.
- After Update 0.11.0, the Player can use Andesite, Diorite, or Granite to make Stone Slabs.
- Before Update 0.14.0, if a Creeper exploded on a slab, it would destroy nothing but the slab.
- Light can pass through slabs, meaning if the Player puts Torches or Glowstone underneath, there will still be light.
- Two different slabs will not stack; for instance, a Stone Slab cannot be placed directly on a Cobblestone Slab, and when placed the Stone Slab will appear to be floating.
- Bug: There is a bug that causes mobs to spin in circles when they walk over a slab.
- When two slabs of the same type are placed on top of each other, they will form a full block of whatever the slab is made out of.
- However, when broken, it will not drop the block.
