Skyroot Chest is a type of utility block found in the Aether.


It does not require an axe to be obtained, and so, will drop even if mined with bare hands, but mining with an axe is faster.

Grid Skyroot Chest

To make a large Skyroot Chest, place two of them next to each other.


Skyroot Chests can be used to store items. Skyroot Chests will face towards the player when placed. To place one, right-click on the surface of a solid block with a Skyroot Chest in hand. If an opaque block or Ocelot is placed on top of a Skyroot Chest, the player will not be able to open it. A chest can be renamed using an Anvil, which can be helpful to sort chests and the contents within.

Skyroot Chests are not moved by Pistons and liquids will flow around them without displacing them. Lava may create fire adjectant to Skyroot Chests as if they were actually flammable but they will never catch fire. A large Skyroot Chest is created by placing two of them adjacent to each other, however, large Skyroot Chests cannot be created directly beside each other except above or below each other.


A single Skyroot Chest can store up to 27 stacks of items or blocks and can hold from 0 to 1728 blocks. Large Skyroot Chests have 54 storage slots and open as a single Skyroot Chest with six rows of slots. A large Skyroot Chest can hold from 0 to 3456 blocks. The top three rows in the interface correspond to the eastern or northern chest block and the bottom three to the southern or western chest block.

Destruction of a Skyroot Chest will drop all of its contents where the chest was destroyed. If one half of a large Skyroot Chest is destroyed, the corresponding items from the destroyed Skyroot Chest block will be dropped and the remaining Skyroot Chest block will continue to function as a small Skyroot Chest. The items in a large Skyroot Chest are organized so that the bottom half of the inventory is concentrated into the South or East side of a large Skyroot Chest, depending on how a Skyroot Chest is oriented.
