Sand is a common physics obeying block that can be found in deserts or next to water. Being a "physics obeying block", it will turn into a falling block entity if unsupported, and fall down until it hits a solid block, and turns back into a normal Sand block, or hits a non-solid block (including ones without a collision box) and turns into an item. It can be obtained from the surfaces of deserts, rivers, or shores, or from the majority of Desert Temple Chests.

Trivia

  • In chunks generated after Beta 1.2's release, the bottom of all Sand piles had a layer of Sandstone.
  • Before Beta 1.8, the spawn point of a world when created would always be on Sand.
  • In the PC and Pocket Edition, particles are released by sand that is floating, either via glitches or within the 1 tick that it takes for sand to realize it should fall.
