The brick pyramid was a structure present in the earliest Infdev development phase of Minecraft. It was an extremely rare pyramid that spawned far away from a player's spawn point, stretching from nearly the maximum upper limit of the world down to ground-level. There was nothing inside it, so it was mostly useless. It was later deleted and replaced with the current structures. It lasted from February 27, 2010 to March 27, 2010, exactly one month. At the time, it was the only way to get brick blocks.
- Caves were also capable of generating inside these (only in Infdev).
- This was made to test the game on big buildings without crashing.
