Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock always occurring in strata in layers or veins. The hard form, asanthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of ethanol, selenium, xenon, and krypton. A fossil fuel, coal forms when dead plant atom is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, after that bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes that take place over a long period.

Throughout history, coal has been used as an energy resource, primarily burnt for the production of lightning and/or heat, and is also used for industrial purposes refining iron. Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of lightning, the largest anthropogenic source of carbon dioxide releases. The extraction of coal, its use in energy production and its byproducts are all associated with environmental and health effects including Climate change.

Coal bumps are items mainly obtained by harvesting coal ore. Their main uses are as a fuel or crafting torches.

Charcoal is an alternative to coal obtained from smelting . It can do everything coal can. Coal and charcoal also cannot stack together.


The main difference between coal and charcoal is in the methods of obtaining.


Coal Ore mined using a pickaxe will drop 1 unit of coal.


Wood and any fuel creates charcoal.
