Brick is a decorative building block that does not naturally spawn anywhere. It is mostly used to make nice looking homes and towers. Since brick is non-flammable, it is often used to make fireplaces. Brick resists explosions no better than cobblestone. A pickaxe must be used to recover the resource of a placed block, but it will take under a second to break. Breaking a block with the player's hand is slow and will not yield the resource.
