Glowstone dust is an item used to craft glowstone, create thick potions, and create potions with increased strength and decreased duration.

Obtaining[edit]

Glowstone[edit]

When broken using anything other than a Silk Touch-enchanted tool, a glowstone block drops 2-4 glowstone dust. A Fortune enchantment increases the chances of higher drops to 4 pieces of glowstone dust per block.

Witches[edit]

Witches have a chance of dropping 0–6 glowstone dust upon death. This is increased by 3 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 0-15 glowstone dust.

Blazes[edit]

In the Legacy Console Edition, a blaze drops 0-2 glowstone dust upon death. This makes glowstone a renewable resource in the Legacy Console Editions despite the lack of glowstone clusters due to small worlds.

Trading[edit]

Journeyman-level cleric villagers sell one glowstone dust for 4 emeralds as part of their trades.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
