Glow sticks are chemistry-related items, which can be lit up in the player's hand for a limited time.

Usage[]

While equipped, players can use glow sticks to shake them, causing them to appear bright regardless of the light level. This is only an aesthetic change, as no light is emitted to the surrounding area. A particle effect is visible until the durability runs out. The glowstick's durability depletes while lit[more information needed], in both Survival and Creative modes.

Trivia[]

  • The glowing reaction of Luminol during oxidation exists in real life. It is used for detecting blood in crime scenes.
  • Players cannot enchant glowsticks with Unbreaking or Mending, despite it having durability.
  • The black and light gray glow sticks use the same texture as the red glow stick.[verify]
