Charcoal is an alternative to Coal and is obtained by Smelting Wood in a Furnace. Like Coal, it can be used to craft Torches, but it cannot be used in the making of Blocks of Coal due to obvious problems with decrafting. Charcoal is mainly used in the early stages of the game when the player may not have easy access to Coal.


Charcoal is obtained by Smelting Wood in a Furnace.


  • Before 1.6.1, Charcoal had the same texture as Coal.
