End rods are decorative light sources that emit white particles.

End rods generate naturally all over end cities. They may spawn upright on the outside of towers, and they may spawn sideways inside of towers.
End rods are primarily used as light sources and decoration. They can be placed on any surface of any block, including other End rods. They will not break if their supporting block is broken. Gravity-affected blocks like sand or gravel will not break if they fall onto an End rod oriented vertically, but will break on a rod oriented horizontally. End rods can be pushed and pulled by pistons, no matter the orientation.
Inside some end city towers, they are positioned so the player may use them to climb the tower, similar to a spiral staircase.
End rods emit a light level of 14 (same as torches), and will therefore melt snow layers and ice within a 2-block radius.
