Description   (From Recipaedia)

A block of coal. If set on fire in the open, it will burn for a very long time. Good as a long lasting fuel in the furnace. You can craft it from a number of coal chunks, or split it back into them. Blocks of coal can sometimes be found underground inside of rich coal seams.


Combine 9 coal chunks to form 1 Solid Coal Block. They may also be found naturally in heavy coal veins. 

The block may be later broken down to reclaim the chunks.

Solid Coal Block craft


  • Solid Coal Blocks are typically used as a decoration and are one of the darkest blocks in the game. They are nearly identical to Black Painted Basalt in the default textures. Remember they are flammable!
  • Coal Blocks may be used in a furnace as a fuel. Their fuel value is only 600 and 9 pieces of coal have a total fuel value of 720. Using one in a furnace wastes 120 fuel values.
  • They can be set afire in an open space and will burn forever.    
  • They only stack up to 4, so are not a very efficient means of storing coal at 36 chunks per stack. When you find one you should immediately break it down into chunks.
  • Solid Coal Blocks may be found by digging up new graves.
  • Solid Coal Blocks are good campfire makers. Remember not to set it on fire near flammable materials!
