Blue ice is a solid block similar to packed ice.

Blue ice naturally generates on the bottom of the icebergs in frozen ocean biomes.
Blue ice is slippery, causing most entities to slide, including items. It is even more slippery than ice or packed ice. This also allows for increased speed of items in water currents by placing the blue ice under the water current. Mobs do not travel faster in water currents on blue ice.
Blue ice is a completely solid block, and allows placement of any objects on top.
Unlike normal ice, blue ice will not melt if placed near light sources.
