It has been suggested that the contents of this page be split into "Block of Quartz", "Chiseled Quartz Block", "Quartz Pillar", "Smooth Quartz", and "Quartz Bricks". Discuss
The topics presented on this page may be diverse enough to warrant distinct pages.
Reason: this page is now documenting five pretty different blocks, which is starting to feel pretty ridiculous - the only things really holding these blocks together is their history and that they're all made out of quartz, but we don't have Stone, Stone Bricks and Smooth Stone all on the same page so why should we have all these here?

Oh, come on. You're not fooling anyone. We know you didn't build your palace out of Nether Quartz because you think it looks good – you're just humblebragging that you've been to the Nether, mined the place rotten for Nether Quartz ore, and then got back alive. Alive and smug. Now we have to live next to your magnificent palace made of quartz in our hut made of dirt. Grumble grumble...

Tom Stone[1]

A block of quartz is a mineral block used only for decoration. It can be turned into a chiseled quartz block, quartz pillar,[a] smooth quartz,[b] or quartz bricks.‌[upcoming: 1.16]

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Block of Quartz", "Quartz Block", "Chiseled Quartz Block", "Pillar Quartz Block", or "Pillar Quartz" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • Because of the low blast resistance of regular quartz blocks, it may be preferable to use two quartz slabs when making fortifications using quartz.
  • Unlike other mineral blocks, it is impossible to craft quartz blocks into nether quartz, so it is not possible to use quartz blocks as storage for nether quartz.
