The Block of Bones is a block that generates in structures around the world.


The Block of Bones can be crafted out of 9 bones in a crafting table. It drops 9 bones instead of itself when mined.

The Block of Bones obeys gravity, and will break apart into nine bones if it falls more than 3 blocks.
