Andesite is a block that was added in the 1.8 update along with Granite and Diorite. Andesite is usually exposed on the surface in Extreme Hills Biomes, but it can generate in other Biomes as well. It was added to Minecraft: Pocket Edition in version 0.9.0, and it will generate mainly in Caverns where it is usually in large veins.

Crafting

Andesite can be crafted by placing Cobblestone and diorite in the crafting interface or a Crafting Table. Andesite can also be converted into "Polished Andesite", by combining four blocks of andesite.

Polished Andesite

Polished Andesite is the smooth variant of andesite which can only be obtained through crafting. It is mainly used as a decorative block for building. When it was originally a PE exclusive item, it had to be crafted by using a stonecutter instead of a crafting table.
