A redstone torch is a non-solid block that can be used as a toggleable redstone power source, as well as a signal inverter.
In Java Edition, the inactive redstone torch cannot be obtained as an item. In Bedrock Edition, it can be obtained via inventory editing.

Redstone torches can be broken instantly using anything, and drop themselves as an item.
A redstone torch is removed and drops itself as an item if:
- its attachment block is moved, removed, or destroyed
- water or lava flows into its space
- a piston pushes it or moves a block into its space
A single redstone torch is found inside each igloo.
Ingredients Crafting recipe Redstone Dust +Stick
Redstone torches can be used to craft activator rails, redstone comparators, and redstone repeaters.

Redstone torches can be used to power blocks and transmission components such as redstone dust, activate mechanism components such as pistons, or invert redstone signals like a NOT Gate.
To place a redstone torch, use the Place Block control while aiming at the surface to which the redstone torch should be attached. A redstone torch can be attached to:
- the top or side of any full solid opaque block (stone, dirt, blocks of gold, etc.), including full-block mechanism components (command blocks, dispensers, droppers, note blocks, and redstone lamps)
- the top only or side only of certain block. SeeOpacity/Placement.
Redstone torches cannot be attached to the bottoms of any blocks. Attempting to attach a redstone torch to an invalid surface can cause it to “snap” to a valid surface adjacent to the same space. For example, if a fence is on the ground, attempting to attach a redstone torch to the side of the fence causes the redstone torch to be attached to the top of the ground next to the fence instead. Activation A redstone torch is active unless the block it is attached to is powered. Effectively, a redstone torch inverts the signal applied to its attachment block: power level 0 is changed to 15 and power levels 1 to 15 are changed to 0 (for an alternative that produces a greater range of output power levels, consider a redstone comparator in subtraction mode). Walls, fences, glass, slabs, hoppers, and stairs cannot be powered so redstone torches attached to them cannot be deactivated. A redstone torch takes 1 redstone tick (2 game ticks, or 0.1 seconds barring lag) to change state and usually does not respond to 1-tick fluctuations of power. Behavior While active, a redstone torch:
- powers adjacent redstone dust to power level 15, including beneath the redstone torch if it is attached to the side of a block
- powers adjacent redstone comparators or redstone repeaters facing away from the redstone torch to power level 15
- strongly powers a full solid opaque block above the redstone torch to power level 15 (but not next to or below it)
- activates adjacent mechanism components, including above or below, such as pistons, redstone lamps, etc.
- produces “reddust” particles
A redstone torch never affects the block it is attached to, even if it is a mechanism component. For example, a redstone torch attached to a redstone lamp does not activate the lamp. A redstone torch experiences “burn-out” when it is forced to change state (by powering and de-powering the block it is attached to) more than eight times in 60 game ticks (three seconds, barring lag). After burning out, a redstone torch produces a “smoke” particle and a hiss similar to an extinguished fire, deactivates, and then ignores attempts to change its state until the number of state changes in the last 60 game ticks drops to fewer than eight—after that it re-activates when it receives a block update (an adjacent block changing its state) or a redstone update that would not normally deactivate the redstone torch. There is no limit on how often a single redstone torch can burn out.

Unlit redstone torch “item”
The following content is transcluded from Technical blocks/Unlit Redstone Torch. Java Edition Alpha v1.0.1 Unlit redstone torches have an unobtainable item form corresponding to its block ID, which uses the inactive texture. It can be obtained via inventory editors with numeric item ID 75. Java Edition Beta 1.6Test Build 3Unlit redstone torch items can be obtained from the newly added debug chests, mainly from the 17th slot of the 3rd chest from the left, and the 1st slot of the 7th chest from the left. releaseDebug chests no longer spawn, preventing unlit redstone torch items from being obtained this way. 1.8Pre-release 2 ;)Added pick block functionality. This will change the currently selected slot to any containing this otherwise-unobtainable redstone torch item, but will not allow it to be obtained if not already in the hotbar. Java Edition 1.2.5prePick Block now returns the actually obtainable redstone torch item. 1.3.112w16aUnlit redstone torch items can now be obtained in singleplayer worlds via the /give command using the respective numeric ID. 1.7.213w37aThe direct item form of unlit redstone torches has been removed from the game. It can no longer exist as an item in any way, only as a placed block. Bedrock Edition ?Unlit redstone torches probably exist as an item.
Item names did not exist prior to Beta 1.0.
- Beta 1.0 – 13w36b: Redstone Torch
- In Minecraft Earth, the icon in the inventory shows an unlit redstone torch.
