Toxic Block is a hazardous generation block.
Toxic Blocks can be harvested by hand.
Toxic Blocks generate naturally in the Abyss in pools below y = 10.
Toxic Blocks generate within Eye Bulb Grottoes and Illusion Trees.
Stepping on a Toxic Block will damage the player for 4 (×2). This damage pierces unenchanted armor; however, the Protection enchantment will decrease the amount of damage taken.
It will also apply negative effects:
- Poison VI for 3 seconds
- Blindness VI for 2 seconds
- Nausea VI for 2 seconds
This only affects players, and only if they are not in Creative mode.
Toxic Blocks have their own damage source. When killed by a Toxic Block, the death message is "Toxic blocks put <player> to sleep".
