Where to Find Sculk Blocks in Minecraft
Sculk Blocks are a unique type of item found exclusively in the deep dark biome or created by the sculk catalyst. The block has glowing spots that do not illuminate the surroundings. You can find the deep dark underground biome anywhere in the Y=-1 and Y=-64 range.
Sculk blocks can be mined with any tool, but hoes can get the job done the most quickly. It will always drop 1 experience if mined without Silk Touch, a tool enchantment that causes certain blocks to drop themselves instead of their usual items when mined. Since a hoe breaks sculk blocks the fastest, it’s best to use an enchanted hoe to break sculk blocks.
There are five types of sculk blocks in Minecraft and each comes with its own unique mechanics linked to them. Here’s a look at all the five types of sculk blocks:
- Sculk – A Decorative block used only for aesthetics and building
