Note: You can't mine the lanterns from the spawn tower anymore because of the new update. Lanterns are also a neutral block, as no tool breaks this the fastest.
Lanterns are a block in CastleMiner Z. They offer more light in an area, but at the cost of requiring more materials to make than a torch. To make one, you need torches, sand, and iron. An important fact is that lanterns cannot be broken by dragon attacks, unlike torches. When reaching approximately 250,000 distance, the player reaches a secret "easter egg-like" biome, nicknamed Lantern Land. The lanterns cannot be mined, but they expand in all directions until 500,000 distance.
