Frosted ice is a translucent solid block.
Frosted ice cannot be obtained as an item.[JE only] It can be placed only using block-placement commands such as
/setblock. Frosted ice can be easily destroyed without tools. Breaking it with Silk Touch drops nothing, while breaking in any other manner produces water in the same way ice does.
Frosted ice is generated by players walking near water while wearing boots with the Frost Walker enchantment. Frost Walker II creates a larger area of frosted ice.
Frosted ice behaves in most ways like ice: it is slightly slippery, causing entities to slide, including items.
Frosted ice naturally melts fairly quickly. The block is created with an age of 0, and is ticked every 1–2 seconds. If a 1⁄3 chance succeeds or the block has fewer than 4 frosted ice blocks in the 6 blocks surrounding it, and the light level (including light from the sun) at the block would be greater than 11 minus the age, the age is incremented. When the age reaches 4, the block turns into water and all adjacent blocks have their age incremented (but if these blocks melt also, the effect does not continue to cascade). This does mean that in places with low light levels, such as inside caves or at night, it never melts naturally.
When a frosted ice block melts or is broken, any adjacent frosted ice block immediately melts if it has fewer than 2 frosted ice blocks remaining in the 6 blocks surrounding it.
It also does not cause sugar cane or crops to fall when ice forms.
