Minecraft (Pocket Edition)




Netherrack is obtained by activating a Nether Reactor. The result of the process is the spontaneous creation of a large, multi-storey tower composed entirely of Netherrack.

Usage / Purpose

Netherrack can be used to craft Nether Brick and Nether Brick Stairs. It is a soft material and has a low blast resistance. It does have a low light level, however, which makes it ideal for both spawning Mobs and for growing Mushrooms.

Drops / Yields

Each block of Netherrack drops one unit when mined.


Netherrack is stored in stacks of up to 64 blocks.


In Survival Mode the only way to acquire Netherrack is to activate the Nether Reactor. At present this is the only link to the Nether.
