Glass panes are transparent blocks which can be used as a much more efficient alternative to glass blocks.


Glass panes can only be obtained by mining them using a tool enchanted with Silk Touch, otherwise they drop nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Glass panes generate naturally as windows in villages and woodland mansions.


Glass panes are much more efficient than glass, as they can make windows of 267% the area of glass blocks, because only 6 glass blocks are required to make 16 glass panes.


If placed without anything on the sides, they will appear as a thin vertical • shape , 2x2 pixels in size; but when something is placed on the sides, it will become flat or turn into a Curve.png or T junction.png or Cross.png shape depending on the items surrounding it. The collision box is identical to the shape of the pane, allowing both items and players to fit through 2x2 glass pane holes.

Glass panes are never horizontal.

Issues relating to "Glass Pane" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.


  • If two glass panes are placed with one empty space in between, a spider (which is 2 blocks wide) can still fit through.
  • Glass panes are called "thinGlass" in the game's code, but all glass pane texture files within minecraft.jar begin with the prefix "glass_pane" (e.g. "glass_pane_top.png").
