Prismarine is a block added in Update 1.8. It can be found in Ocean Monuments or crafted with four Prismarine Shards.

Prismarine's texture is animated; the cracks on the block's texture will slowly change colors from red to blue to purple. The full animation takes 5 minutes and 30 seconds to complete.


  • Prismarine and Sea Lanterns are the only solid blocks with animated textures.
  • Prismarine's name was suggested by Reddit user AjaxGb during the naming contest conducted by Jeb.
    • Jeb liked the name since it sounded aquatic, reflected the prismatic nature of the block, and was not already a real stone or mineral.
