The Block of Quartz is a block added in 1.5 (13w01a) for the Java Edition and 0.6.0 for Pocket Edition that can be crafted from four pieces of Nether Quartz. A block of quartz currently has no use other than for decoration or building. It can be used as a white substitute to wool in construction because it will not burn.

Crafting

Nether quartz blocks can be crafted and used to craft other items.
