Rusted Iron Block

The Rusted Iron Block, added by the Realistic Minecraft idea pack, appears when an Iron Block is touched by any water (Snow and Ice do not count unless they are in the process of melting due to high light) five times. When mined by a Diamond Pickaxe, it drops 6-8
Rust Dust, which can be put in a 3x3 square to craft it. The Silk Touch enchantment is required to mine it without Rust Dust being dropped.

Note: Since it is rusted, the Diamond Pickaxe is the only pickaxe to be able to mine it and get anything back.


  • The Rusted Iron Block, though it is rusted, has the same mining speed as a normal Block of Iron. However, it requires a Diamond Pickaxe to mine it and get anything at al.
