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

- Nether Quartz is based of the real mineral called quartz.
- If the 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 makes it difficult to find nether quartz in old worlds.
- 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 anyway.
- Quartz is the only item in Pocket Edition and the PC version that isn't in the Xbox version.
