This page describes content that is no longer in the game.
Item descriptions from crafting/stonecutting were removed in Pocket Edition Alpha 0.9.0, and from smelting in a later update.

In alpha builds of Pocket Edition, crafting interfaces held descriptions for the item to be crafted.

Below is a table of all item descriptions. Descriptions for uncraftable items also appear to exist despite not having anywhere to be displayed.

Can also be used for low-level lighting. (Note: light gray dye can also be made by combining gray dye with bone meal, letting you make four light gray dyes from every ink sac instead of three.)
