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

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

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

Usage[edit]

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

Concrete powder falls when there is a non-solid block beneath it. If it falls on a player or mob, the player or mob suffocates when the falling block entity becomes solid.

Creating concrete[edit]

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

It is more efficient to build vertical walls out of concrete powder, then pour a bucket of water along the top to solidify the whole column, than to form it, mine it, then place it separately.

Falling block entity[edit]

Falling Block
White Concrete Powder.png
Size

Height: 0.98 Blocks
Width: 0.98 Blocks

  • 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 does not have an item form with the same ID as the block does not 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. By default this value is always 2.

History[edit]

Java Edition
1.12February 02, 2017Jeb tweeted a video of a mysterious pink gravity-obeying block transforming into a solid gravity-defying block on contact with water.
Jeb later added that it is to come in 16 different colors.[1]

1.1317w47aThe different block states for the concrete_powder ID have been split up into their own IDs.
Lava now turns concrete powder into concrete when coming into contact with said block, instead of converting concrete powder only when it fell into the lava's source block.[2]
Prior to The Flattening, this block's numeral ID was 252.
?Lava no longer converts concrete powder.
