First Appearance

Update 0.5.0

Glowstone Dust is a resource normally found in the Nether, and is used to Craft an illuminating Block known as Glowstone, which is naturally found in clumps on the Nether ceiling. 


  • 4 Glowstone Dust => Glowstone


  • A Glowstone Block yields only 2-4 Glowstone Dust, meaning the Player may need 1 or 2 more to craft another.
  • Glowstone is no longer obtainable in Old Worlds, since the Nether has not yet been implemented yet in those worlds.
  • Before Update 0.12.1, Glowstone was obtained by using the Nether Reactor.
  • Glowstone Dust has an appearance similar to 3 Items: Sugar, Redstone Dust, and Gunpowder.
  • When used in Brewing, Glowstone Dust makes Potion effects stronger.
  • Glowstone Dust can be crafted into Glowstone without a Crafting Table.
  • As of Update 0.14.0, it can be obtained by killing a Witch.
