A Basalt Block

Basalt is one of the most easily obtainable blocks in the game, as it can be found in the form of Basalt Mountains, which spawn at higher elevations. 

Description Edit

Basalt is a rather straightforward block, as far as appearances are concerned. Predominantly gray, with tiny lighter gray specks through out the block.

The first supercavern, also refered to as "Hell", is made up of basalt, though before update 1.8, this was not the case as it was instead made up of Andesite and Dacite.

The block's description reads: "Basalt is a common extrusive volcanic rock. It is one of the most common rock types in the world."

Uses Edit

Basalt is used in a couple ways, some of which will be listed below:

  • Stone Wall (one of the ingredients)
  • Polished Basalt and Polished Basalt Bricks

Traditionally, it's used for basic building needs, as well as creating the furnace, which is used with the skill of cooking and smelting.
