[view] • Glowstone dust is dropped by breaking Glowstone in the Nether with your hand (2-4 Glowstone). Glowstone is a very common substance dangling from the ceiling of The Nether. Four Glowstone dust can be crafted into a Glowstone block. Glowstone can be found outside of The Nether in the Xbox 360 Edition tutorial. It is also dropped by Blazes as of TU8, and Witches; this makes Glowstone Dust a Renewable Resource.
