Hardened Clay is a block with a blast resistance comparable to that of stone-based blocks. It can be dyed to create Stained Clay. Stained clay is available in the same 16 colors that wool can be dyed, although the color is tinted orange.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Hardened clay can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
Hardened clay and red, orange, yellow, brown, white and light gray stained clay can be found naturally in mesa biomes. This yields a large quantity of hardened clay. Blue and orange stained clay can also be found in desert temples.

Usage[edit | edit source]
Hardened and stained clay has the same blast resistance as most other stone blocks, which is significantly higher than the block of clay before being smelted. A block of hardened clay when one meter away from an explosion will protect any blocks behind it, though it will be destroyed in the process.
