Both of these can be Crafted into respective types of Sandstone.

Crafting

Smelting

Usage

Sand can be used for farming Cactus, as they can only be placed on Sand, and Sugarcane. Dead Bushes can also spawn on Sand. Sand obeys Gravity, meaning that it will fall if there is no block beneath it. However, it will not fall at world generation; it will only fall after a block state next to it is toggled.

Trivia

  • The texture for Sand is also the texture used for the hotbar.
  • Sand did not obey Gravity before Update 0.6.0.
  • If pushed upwards by a Piston, Sand breaks when the Piston retracts.
  • Sand is a component of Redstone alternatives, mainly being the Piston alternative for Piston alternative doors.
    • However, said Redstone alternatives are obsolete as all Redstone components are added as of Update 1.0.
  • As Sand is falling, it is an entity, it can be Fished towards the Player. This is also true for Gravel and Concrete Powder.
  • Placing a Torch on the block below falling Sand will break the Sand, and it can then be picked up.
