Coal is a item that is harvested from Coal Ore blocks when mined. They are the third most efficient fuel available for furnaces (just after lava buckets and Blaze Rods), being able to smelt eight units per lump of coal.

Coal can also sometimes be obtained from Wither Skeletons as a drop.


  • Coal and charcoal are the only fuels accepted by powered minecarts (providing approximately four minutes of transit each).
