Blocks of Quartz (also known as Quartz Blocks) are mineral blocks crafted from Nether Quartz that are used only for decoration. In the Pocket Edition, their ingredients appear next to powered nether reactors.

Unlike other mineral blocks such as the Block of Iron or Glowstone, they cannot be crafted or broken back into Nether Quartz items. Much like Sandstone, they can only be further crafted into more decorative forms.

[edit] History

Official release
January 5, 2013 Jeb tweeted that Nether Quartz would be used for more decorative uses as well.[1]
January 7, 2013 Jeb tweeted the first image about the Nether Quartz Block.[2]
January 9, 2013 Jeb released the textures for snapshot 13w02a early, which included the textures for the Nether Quartz block. This revealed there would be at least three variants: The standard block, a lines variant, and a chiseled variant. There are 7 textures for the blocks.
1.5 13w02a Blocks of Quartz were added to the game.
13w03a Pillar Quartz Blocks can be placed sideways.
Pocket Edition Alpha
January 15, 2013 Jeb tweeted that he would add Nether Quartz blocks.
0.6.0 Added Block of Quartz, Pillar Quartz Block, Chiseled Quartz Block, and Quartz Stairs, however only Blocks of Quartz are craftable in survival
0.7.3 Added Quartz Slabs. They are craftable in Survival.
0.7.4 Chiseled Quartz Block and Pillar Quartz craftable in survival, however Quartz Stairs are still not craftable.

[edit] Trivia

  • The block of Quartz is usually considered to be very similar to marble, and sometimes called marble incorrectly.
  • The texture for the pillar quartz block is very similar to a log, and follows the same placement behavior as logs.
  • Quartz was first available in Pocket Edition, before PC. (unless snapshots are counted)
  • Because of the low blast resistance of regular quartz blocks, it may be preferable to use two quartz slabs when making fortifications using quartz.
