Description   (From Recipaedia )

Gravel is an aggregate of fine stones. Caches of gravel are often found underground, and it sometimes covers beaches. It is then known under the name of shingle. Gravel is a loose material that will collapse when tunnelled under, and may easily bury the unwary, so be careful. It's the best source of rocks for throwing.


Gravel may drop one to three stone chunks which can be used as a thrown weapon (with very little damage) or can be used to craft stone tip arrows.


  • Gravel usually drops one-five stone chunks but may also drop a gravel block.
  • Although it is possible to dig it up using your hands, it is recommended that you use a shovel.
  • Gravel and Sand fall at a rate of 10 blocks per second. Either can easily kill you in an instant if they fall on your head. If it doesn't kill you immediately, you will likely suffocate.
