The recipe above will actually yield concrete powder - a substance that falls like sand and has the blast resistance of a damp napkin. To turn it into concrete you’ll need to add an extra ingredient - water. As soon as a concrete powder block touches water, it’ll harden immediately into full concrete. Magic! No wait, the other thing - science!

Tom Stone[1]

Concrete powder is a solid block which comes in the 16 regular dye colors. Like sand, gravel, anvils, and the dragon egg, concrete powder obeys the law of gravity.

Concrete powder can be mined with any tool or by hand, but using a shovel is the quickest method.

Normal sand falls through the water, while one of the pink concrete powder blocks solidifies on immediate contact with the water.

Concrete powder will fall when there is a non-solid block beneath it. If it falls on a player or mob, the player or mob will suffocate.

Creating concrete[edit]

If a concrete powder block comes into contact with water or lava,[2] it will solidify into a block of concrete. Specifically, the block has to be placed into, next to, or fall into flowing water/lava or a water/lava source block. It will not solidify in midair falling past water/lava. If it lands next to water/lava, it will solidify only after a block update. Rain or splash water bottles also have no effect on concrete powder. Concrete powder in item form will also not become concrete. Concrete powder placed directly at water will make the placement sound of concrete.

Namespaced ID


  • Dynamic block entity data
    • Tags common to all entities see Template:Nbt inherit/entity/template
    •  TileEntityData: Optional. The tags of the block entity for this block.
    •  BlockState: The falling block represented by this entity.
      •  Name: The namespaced ID of the block.
      •  Properties: Optional. The block states of the block.
        •  Name: The block state name and its value.
    •  Time: The number of ticks the entity has existed. If set to 0, the moment it ticks to 1, it vanishes if the block at its location has a different ID than the entity's TileID. If the block at its location has the same ID as its TileID when Time ticks from 0 to 1, the block is deleted, and the entity continues to fall, having overwritten it. When Time goes above 600, or above 100 while the block is below Y=0, the entity is deleted.
    •  DropItem: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if the block should drop as an item when it breaks. Any block that doesn't have an item form with the same ID as the block won't drop even if this is set.
    •  HurtEntities: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if the block should hurt entities it falls on.
    •  FallHurtMax: The maximum hit points of damage to inflict on entities that intersect this falling_block. For vanilla falling_block, always 40♥ × 20.
    •  FallHurtAmount: Multiplied by the FallDistance to calculate the amount of damage to inflict. For vanilla falling_block, always 2.

1.12February 02, 2017Jens Bergensten tweeted a video of a mysterious pink gravity-obeying block transforming into a solid gravity-defying block on contact with water.
He later added that it will come in 16 different colors.[3]

1.1317w47aThe different block states for the concrete_powder ID have been split up into their own IDs.
Lava will now turn concrete powder into concrete when coming into contact with said block, instead of only converting concrete powder when it fell into the lava's source block.[4]
Prior to The Flattening, this block's numeral ID was 252.
