soul sand

Minecraft Block

Soul Sand (also known as Slow Sand , Mud , Hell Mud or Nethermud ) is a brown-grey dirt -type block with sad, pixelated faces on it. It is found naturally only in The Nether , usually near large bodies of lava in deposits similar to gravel deposits. It is commonly thought that the best tool for harvesting Soul Sand is a shovel because harvesting it makes the same sound as dirt, gravel and sand . However, shovels make no effect in speeding up the collection process. Swords can harvest it slightly faster, but this costs two uses of the sword instead of one. Soul Sand is also used in the creation of The Wither .
