Charcoal is one of the most easily obtainable items found in Minecraft. Charcoal is obtined by smelting Oak Wood, Jungle Wood, Birch Wood, or Spruce Wood in a Furnace. Charcoal and Coal are exactly the same, although Charcoal is easier to obtain, and Coal is a natural material. Charcoal is used to power a Furnace. In the Furnace, Charcoal is used to heat or smelt eight items. Charcoal is capable of melting any item (Wood, Iron Ores, Gold Ores, Sand, Cobblestone, etc.) Charcoal isn't very valuable, as it doesn't take much effort to get it. Charcoal and a Stick are used to craft four Torches. Torches are used to raise light levels in the dark.
