Minecraft Data Values

This list shows the Data Values in Minecraft. Data values are used everywhere in Minecraft. You can’t see them, but they define all block, items, biomes etc.

Data values are used to spawn items, where you need to know the block or item id, for example with the /give command used in the Single Player Commands mod.

If you find this list useful, please +1 us and Like, thank you.

Minecraft data values overview


Block ID’s

These values apply to both inventory items and to blocks placed in the world.


D Requires additional data from the saved game’s Data array to fully define the block.
I Has a different ID as an inventory item.
B Requires additional data in the item’s Damage field to fully define the inventory item.
T Requires a tile entity to store additional data.
Red Cannot be legitimately obtained. Only available using the /give command or via inventory editors.
Light blue Cannot be obtained in any way.
Blue Only available in Creative mode in item list.
Purple Available in Creative mode in block list.
Teal Can be obtained by trading with villagers or in Creative mode.
Green Only available by Enchanting tools or in Creative mode.
Yellow green Only available by Enchanting tools, cannot be obtained in Creative mode.
Orange Not in the current version of the game. Only available in an update yet to be released.
Grey Unused data.


Minecraft 1.6.2 Block ID's

Item ID’s

All items have values above 255, making it easy to separate the Block ID’s from the Item ID’s. Entries marked with a D require additional data to fully define the item in a Beta world. The chainmail set is currently unobtainable without hacking or, in multiplayer, the /give server command. It is available in Creative mode, however.
