Description   (From Recipaedia )

Sand is a yellowish loose material that covers desert areas and beaches. Be careful because sand will collapse when tunelled under. It is most commonly used to make glass. Cacti will often grow on it in dry and hot climates.


Sand is a very bright block and can be used to keep rooms brighter with fewer lights. 

You can smelt it in a furnace


  • Gravel and Sand falls at a rate of 10 blocks per second.
  • Yellow Rays can spawn on these in ponds and water areas. They hide and may sting you if you touch them.
