Nether Quartz is an item added in the Update 0.6.0. It is spawned by the Nether Reactor in large quantities and is used to craft Block of Quartz. After Update 0.12.1, Nether Quartz can be obtained by mining Nether Quartz Ore.
- 4 Nether Quartz => 1 Block of Quartz
- 2 Cobblestones + 2 Nether Quartz => 2 Diorites
- 1 Nether Quartz + 1 Diorite => 1 Granite
- 3 Wooden Slabs + 3 Nether Quartz + 3 Glass => Daylight Sensor
- 3 Stone + 1 Nether Quartz + 3 Redstone Torch => Redstone Comparator
- Nether Quartz is also simply known as Quartz.
- In Update 0.12.1, natural Nether Quartz spawns in the Nether in the form of Nether Quartz Ore.
- This is the only ore drop that requires 4, not 9, of that item to make its block.
- And the block cannot be crafted back into Nether Quartz.
