Cut Sandstone (called Smooth Sandstone before 1.13) is a block naturally found in generated structures such as Desert Temples and Desert Villages. Cut sandstone can also be crafted, by placing four blocks of Sandstone in a 2x2 crafting grid, not requiring the 3x3 crafting grid from a Crafting Table

Behavior

Unlike sand, cut sandstone is unaffected by gravity and will not fall if placed without a supporting block. This block is not as similar in appearance to cobblestone as its not-smooth form. It is naturally found only in a Desert temple. In a previous version of Minecraft, sandstone could not be destroyed by an explosion caused by TNT or by creepers.

Variants

Cut Red Sandstone, formerly known as Smooth Red Sandstone, is a block added in 1.14 that can be crafted from red sandstone.

History

Chiseled and cut sandstone blocks were added in Minecraft 1.2.4. Sandstone stairs were added in the developmental snapshot 12w21a.

Bugs

  • In versions prior to 1.7.5, if one crafted cut sandstone in a 2x2 square crafting grid, one will get 4 cut sandstone. If one did this again, one would get those cut sandstone again.
