Basalt is a type of igneous rock found in the Nether.

Natural generation[edit]

Basalt generates naturally in basalt pillars, which are found in the soul sand valley biome.

Usage[edit]

Basalt is currently used only for decoration. Like blocks such as logs and quartz pillars, basalt can face either horizontally or vertically depending on how they are placed; they will face in the direction of the player placing them.
