Glowstone Dust is an item used to craft Glowstone, create thick Potions, and create potions with increased strength and decreased duration.

It can be obtained by breaking glowstone in the Nether (2–4 glowstone dust) and by killing a Witch (up to 6 glowstone dust). In the Legacy Console Edition, a Blaze can drop 0–2 glowstone dust upon death. Journeyman-level cleric villagers sell one glowstone dust for 4 emeralds as part of their trades in Bedrock Edition.
