First Appearance

Update 0.1.0

Sand is a naturally spawning Block that is found in Desert Biomes and beaches. 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 nearby is toggled.

Smelting

Variants

There are two varieties of sand in Minecraft PE:

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

Vegetation

Sand can be used for farming Cacti, as they can only be placed on Sand, and Sugarcane. Dead Bushes can also only spawn on Sand.

Trivia

  • The texture for Sand is also the texture used for the hotbar.
  • Sand did not obey Gravity before Update 0.6.0.
  • 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.
  • Placing a Torch on the block below falling Sand will break the Sand, and it can then be picked up.
  • Sand can be made to float by placing it on Tall Grass and then breaking the grass.
  • Red Sand was added in Update 0.9.0.
