Sandstone is a solid block commonly found in deserts and beaches underneath sand. Red sandstone is a related block, associated with red sand.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Sandstone can be mined with any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, the block drops nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Regular sandstone generates in deserts and beaches, compressed underneath several meters of sand. This naturally protects sand from falling into caves and ravines. Orange terracotta replaces what would be the sandstone layer for red sand, so red sandstone cannot be found naturally unless from village floating structure. It must be crafted from the red sand in badlands biomes.

However, if a village generates some buildings inside of a badlands biome, any floating platform surrounding village buildings generate with red sandstone below red sand.

Many structures that generate in deserts are made of sandstone. Desert wells are made of normal sandstone, desert villages made of normal, cut, and smooth sandstone, and desert pyramids are made of normal, cut, and chiseled sandstone. Additionally, warm underwater ruins are made greatly of sandstone variants. All the aforementioned structures use sandstone blocks, slabs, stairs, and walls. No naturally generated structures are made of red sandstone.

Trivia[edit]

  • Chiseled sandstone has the image of a creeper on it, while chiseled red sandstone has the image of a wither on it.
    • The idea of the wither appearing on chiseled red sandstone was suggested by Reddit user ULiopleurodon.[3]
    • Chiseled sandstone, chiseled red sandstone, chiseled Polished blackstone, chiseled nether brick and cyan glazed terracotta are the only three blocks in the game that implement a mob into the design.
  • Cut sandstone and cut red sandstone are two of the three blocks with a slab equivalent, but not a stair equivalent. The other one is smooth stone.
