How am I supposed to break gold blocks?

I am relatively new to the game, and when I just picked the gold blocks, nothing came out.

What am I doing wrong?

You need an iron pick or better. Fist wood and stone will break it and drop nothing.

New question: what is gold good for? tools you make out of it are no better than wood...

You can make a watch with it.

You can make a watch which will tell you whether it is night or day, which can be helpful while tunneling and mining. You can also make a gold apple which restores all health. (red apple surrounded by gold blocks)

You can make things look pretty with gold blocks?

Yeah that's about it

In the update, gold tools mine faster than all the others, but still have the same restrictions and durability.

Uses will likely be added later on for Gold, my guess is something magic-related if and whenever that gets implemented.

Maybe there's more to life than just biting tongues. Maybe not.

Smelt the iron ore in a furnace.

You need to break iron ore with a stone pickaxe or better, a wooden one won't work.
