Glass, you see, can't be broken with regular tools in Minecraft. Well, not without it shattering into a million tiny, invisible shards. Any experienced builder will always cook up more glass than they need for this exact reason - the tiniest slip and you'll have to make a lengthy trip back to the desert for more sand.

Duncan Geere[1]

Glass is a decorative fully transparent block, which can be dyed into stained glass.

Obtaining[edit]

Glass will drop itself only if it is broken with a tool enchanted with Silk Touch; otherwise, it will drop nothing.

Trading[edit]

Villager librarians will trade 3 to 5 glass for 1 emerald as part of their tier 3 trades.[until BE 1.11.0]

Journeyman-level Librarian villagers have a 50% chance to sell 3 glass for 1 emerald.‌[upcoming: BE 1.11.0]

Natural generation[edit]

Magenta stained glass naturally generates as windows in end cities.

A secret room containing glass can be found inside woodland mansions.

Usage[edit]

Most blocks that require placement on a solid block cannot be placed on glass or stained glass.[until JE 1.14] The only exceptions are torches and redstone torches, which can be placed on top of glass, but not attached to their sides.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only]

Glass blocks adjacent to other glass blocks are invisible when viewed through glass.

Trivia[edit]

  • Before Stained Glass was added, there was a similar block named Tinted Glass in the April Fools version 2.0, which had the same use. The texture for the April Fools block was used before it was replaced.
