First Appearance

Update 0.6.0

Nether quartz is an item added in the 0.6.0 update. It is spawned by the Nether Reactor (or Nether Machine) in large quantities (like coal) and is used to craft Block of Quartz. Nether quartz can also be used for crafting Granite and Diorite.


  • Quartz was added to PE before it was added to PC.
  • It takes only 4 nether quartz to make a block of quartz.
  • Nether Quartz is also known as quartz.
  • In PE, it is only obtainable through the Nether Reactor rather than the Nether, however, as of Update 0.12.0, the Nether Reactor will no longer work and the blocks will only be for decorational purposes in Creative only. Blocks related to the Nether Reactor will be removed from Survival. Once the new update comes out, Nether Quartz will be obtainable from mining Nether Quartz ore in the Nether.
  • The ore block for Nether Quartz has the texture of white spots on a netherrack block.
  • In Update 0.12.0, Nether Quartz along with other ores will give you XP when mined.
