A Block of Redstone is both a decorative and a functional block.
Redstone blocks have all the properties of a normal block. However, they also serve a similar purpose to that of Redstone Torches, except that they can be placed on ceilings, float in midair, and cannot be shut off. They are mainly used in toggle switches or "T Flip Flop Switches" where they can be used to make a button function like a lever.
A block of redstone can be crafted with 9 redstone dust.
|Block of Redstone||Redstone Dust x9 |

- If a redstone torch is placed on a block of redstone, it will turn off after 1 tick, and it will not turn back on unless a player breaks it and places it somewhere else.
