Nether Quartz Ore
dec: 153 hex: 99 bin: 10011001
The Nether quartz ore block itself (rather than its Nether quartz drops) can be obtained by mining it with a pickaxe with the Silk Touch enchantment.
Nether quartz is about as abundant as iron in the Overworld. However, it appears to be more abundant because there are more exposed caves in the Nether compared to caves in the overworld. It can also be found at any layer. There is an average of roughly 79 ores per chunk.
