Usage[]

The light from a glowstone is completely blocked by tinted glass.

Tinted glass behaves like an opaque block, blocking light completely, despite being visually translucent. However, it isn't a solid block; mobs do not suffocate if inside it as they do inside regular glass. Unlike other types of glass, it cannot be turned into glass panes.
