Horn Coral Block Wiki Guide

This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a yellow coral block called a Horn Coral Block with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a horn coral block is an item that you can not make with a crafting table or furnace. Instead, you need to find and gather this item in the game. Gathering horn coral blocks is a bit tricky in Minecraft because you need to mine it with a pickaxe that is enchanted with Silk Touch.

How to get a Horn Coral Block in Survival Mode

You can add a horn coral block to your inventory in Survival mode by finding them growing in a Warm Ocean biome and mining them with a pickaxe with Silk Touch. So, let’s get started!

1. Find a Horn Coral Block

First, you need to find a horn coral block in your Minecraft world. A horn coral block is a yellow coral that is usually found growing underwater in a Coral Reef in the Warm Ocean biome.

2. Hold a Pickaxe with Silk Touch

To mine a horn coral block, you need to dig up the horn coral block with a pickaxe with Silk Touch. These are the pickaxes you can choose from.

If you try to mine the horn coral block with your hand or other tool (that is not a pickaxe), the small block of horn coral will not appear. And you will not be able to add the horn coral block to your inventory.

In this example, we are going to use a diamond pickaxe that is enchanted with Silk Touch.

3. Mine the Horn Coral Block

The game control to mine the horn coral block depends on the version of Minecraft:

  • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), left click and hold on the horn coral block.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap and hold on the horn coral block.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press and hold the RT button on the Xbox controller.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press and hold the R2 button on the PS controller.
  • For Wii U, press and hold the ZR button on the gamepad.
  • For Nintendo Switch, press and hold the ZR button on the controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, left click and hold on the horn coral block.
  • For Education Edition, left click and hold on the horn coral block.

You will need to continue to mine until the horn coral block breaks and a smaller horn coral block appears floating in the water. If you wait too long, the horn coral block will float to the top of the water.

TIP: Normally when you mine a horn coral block, you will get a dead horn coral block. However, when you mine the horn coral block using a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch, you will get the living horn coral block itself as a drop.

4. Pick up the Horn Coral Block

Make sure you pick up the horn coral block before it disappears.
