Glowstone is a light-emitting block that appears in the Nether.

Obtaining[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

When broken without a tool, or with any tool not enchanted with Silk Touch, a glowstone block drops 2-4 glowstone dust, or more with a Fortune tool (but never more than 4).

Usage[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Light source[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Glowstone blocks emit a light level of 15, the brightest possible light level in the game. They emit the same amount of light as sea lanterns, jack o'lanterns, redstone lamps and beacons.

In redstone circuits[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

A glowstone block can transmit power up, but not down. Lamp A will be powered because the redstone signal travels up the glowstone block. Lamp B will be off as the signal would have to go down the glowstone, which is not possible.

When placing redstone on a glowstone block, being a transparent block, signals can pass from one block to another diagonally. Redstone wire, even though it may appear to connect up the side of a glowstone block and to the wire portion on top, will not send a redstone signal down the glowstone block. This makes glowstone effective for vertical diodes, logic gate designs and space-efficient instant vertical redstone.

Note that upside-down slabs can be used for the same purpose, and are easier to obtain.

Trivia[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

  • Since glowstone blocks become block entities when moved by pistons, this momentarily stops them from giving off light.
  • Rarely, glowstone can be found touching the ground if the ceiling it was generated on was extremely low (2-3 blocks of clearance).
  • When glowstone is placed 9 or more blocks above ground level (out of its lighting range), the glowstone will actually cast a shadow, despite being a light-emitting block.
