Background

In Minecraft, a monster spawner (sometimes called mob spawner) is a block that spawns mobs. It looks like a black cage.

You will typically find monster spawners in dungeons where they spawn hostile mobs such as spiders or creepers.

*

When you move closer to a spawner, you will see flames burning and a miniature version of the mob will appear inside and spin faster and faster. Eventually, the mob will spawn outside of the monster spawner.

You can change the type of mob that spawns inside the monster spawner by using any spawn egg.

A monster spawner can not be crafted in the game and you can”t dig up a spawner with a tool that has Silk Touch. However in Minecraft PE and Windows 10, a monster spawner is available through the Creative Inventory menu in Creative mode. And in the PC/Mac version, you can create a monster spawner using game commands.
