Nether Quartz is a type of material that can only be found in the Nether and is obtained by mining and/or Smelting Nether Quartz Ore. They can be crafted into a block of quartz for decoration purposes and also can craft, together with glass and wooden slabs, a daylight sensor, or can craft a redstone comparator with redstone torches and stone. Daylight sensors and redstone comparators are both used to send redstone signals. Mason Villagers will buy nether quartz in exchange for Emeralds.

Trivia

  • Nether quartz is based on the real mineral called quartz.
  • If a player entered the Nether before 1.5 was released, then after the update was released, nether quartz ore would only spawn in newly generated chunks. This made it difficult to find nether quartz in old worlds.
    • However, it is possible to re-generate the Nether in the world options of any world.
  • Although in real life striking a quartz crystal on a piece of steel is just as effective as flint on steel (for making sparks), there seems to be no plan to implement a quartz and steel striker, possibly because gravel (thus, flint) is more common than nether quartz, so it is cheaper to use flint.
  • As of TU14 (Title Update 14), quartz is also in the Xbox version.
