Concrete powder is a gravity-affected block that is converted to concrete when touching water. It comes in the 16 regular dye colors.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Concrete powder can be mined with any tool or by hand, but using a shovel is the quickest method.

Usage[]

Normal sand falls through the water, while one of the pink concrete powder blocks solidifies immediately on contact with the water.

Concrete powder falls when there is a non-solid block beneath it.

Creating concrete[]

Main article: Concrete

If a concrete powder block comes into contact with water, it solidifies into a block of concrete. Specifically, the block has to be placed into, placed next to, or fall into flowing water, a water source block, or a waterlogged block. It does not solidify in midair falling past water. If it lands next to water, it solidifies only after a block update. Rain or splash water bottles also have no effect on concrete powder. Concrete powder in item form also does not become concrete. Concrete powder placed directly at water makes the placement sound of concrete.

Note Blocks[]

Concrete powder can be placed under note blocks to produce "snare drum" sound.

Hitbox size

Height: 0.98 Blocks
Width: 0.98 Blocks

  • Dynamic block entity data
      • Tags common to all entities
    •  BlockState: The falling block represented by this entity.
    •  DropItem: 1 or 0 (true/false) – true if the block should drop as an item when it breaks. Any block that does not have an item form with the same ID as the block does not drop even if this is set.
    •  FallHurtAmount: Multiplied by the FallDistance to calculate the amount of damage to inflict. By default this value is always 2.
    •  FallHurtMax: The maximum hit points of damage to inflict on entities that intersect this falling block. For vanilla falling blocks, always 40♥ × 20.
    •  HurtEntities: 1 or 0 (true/false) – true if the block should hurt entities it falls on.
    •  TileEntityData: Optional. The tags of the block entity for this block.
    •  Time: The number of ticks the entity has existed. When Time goes above 600, or above 100 while the block is below Y=1 or is outside building height, the entity is deleted.

History[]

Java Edition
1.12February 02, 2017Jeb tweeted a video of a mysterious pink gravity-obeying block transforming into a solid gravity-defying block on contact with water.
Jeb later added that it is to come in 16 different colors.[1]

pre1Concrete powder now converts to concrete when replacing a lava source.
1.1317w47aThe different block states for the concrete_powder ID have been split up into their own IDs.
Lava now turns concrete powder into concrete when coming into contact with said block, instead of converting concrete powder only when it fell into the lava's source block.[2]
Prior to The Flattening, this block's numeral ID was 252.
1.13.118w30aLava no longer converts concrete powder.
1.1620w07aAs piglins offer gravel in bartering, concrete powder has become a renewable resource.
