Quartz is a raw material used primarily to get Clear Glass. It is found by mining Sand, at a 5% chance of replacing the dropped Sand block. It is stackable, with each stack having a maximum quantity of 64 Quartz.


When smelted in a Furnace, it yields 1 block of Clear Glass.

As a Brewing ingredient, it will turn an Awkward Potion into a Potion of Clear Sight, which in turn, when corrupted with a Fermented Spider Eye, will turn into a Potion of Blindness.


Quartz can be farmed from Sand by using a Sieve, which also creates Sand Powder.


  • Sand mined with a Silk Touch enchanted tool can never turn into Quartz.
  • This item has nothing to do with the Quartz that you can find as an Ore.
