First Appearance

Update 0.12.1

Soul Sand (A.K.A. Hell Sand or Slow Sand) is a Block that was added in Update 0.12.1.

Obtaining

Soul Sand generates naturally in the Nether. Finding it in the Nether is the only way to obtain it.

Usage

Soul Sand makes the Player and all Mobs on it sink down slightly, and therefore walk slower. The effect is enhanced when placed on WaterIce, or Packed Ice. It can be used to trap Hostile Mobs.

Soul Sand can also be used to grow Nether Wart, as it can only be grown on the former. 

Trivia

  • Silverfish and Endermites take damage when walking on Soul Sand.
    • This is because they get immersed into the Block and suffocate due to their small size.
  • There are saddened faces across the face of the block, symbolizing trapped souls.
  • Soul Sand is not a full block, and thus standing next to Lava when on Soul Sand will set the Player on Fire.
  • Soul Sand does not generate in the Overworld, as it is a Nether-exclusive block.
    • However, Players can place it in the Overworld.
  • Soul Sand also generates inside Nether Fortresses, with Nether Warts growing on top.
  • Four Soul Sands and three Wither Skeleton Skulls are used to summon the Wither.
