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