Concrete is a solid block which comes in the 16 regular dye colors.
Hardening concrete powder
Concrete is formed when concrete powder comes into contact with a block of water. It is not formed by contact with rain, cauldrons, particles, or similar.
Concrete requires a pickaxe to be mined. When mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.

Concrete's bright and solid colors makes it useful for decoration. It has more pronounced colors than stained hardened clay, and is not flammable like wool.
As a building material, its hardness is slightly higher than stone, but its blast resistance is significantly lower.
