Nether Quartz blocks can be crafted and used to craft other items


  • Quartz was the only block that was in both PC and Pocket Edition but not in Xbox 360 edition until the latest update.
  • It is similar to Sandstone and Stone Bricks because of its many varieties (Chiseled, Pillar etc.).
  • Unlike the Block of Iron , Block of Gold , Block of Diamond , Block of Redstone , and Block of Emerald , the block of quartz is crafted with four Nether Quartz instead of nine.
