Gravel is a vanilla ore in Minecraft and can be broken using any tool, but a shovel is the quickest. When broken, it has a 10% chance of dropping flint instead of the gravel itself. Gravel is typically found underwater, on beaches, in Village pathways, and in The Nether. It is generated at a rate of approximately 3.29% that of stone between layers 1 and 111.
