Clay is a block that can be discovered in abundance in lush caves, regions of shallow surface water, or by transforming mud with a pointed dripstone. It can either be smelted into terracotta or broken down into clay balls that can be smelted into bricks.
Clay blocks can be extracted with any tool, however shovels are the most efficient. When a clay block is destroyed, four clay balls result. If destroyed with a tool enchanted with Silk Touch, it will drop itself instead. When a tool charmed with Fortune is used to destroy a clay block, the quantity of clay dropped is not increased.
On the bottoms of ponds in lush caves, clay accumulates in great amounts.
