Polished Andesite[edit | edit source]

Polished Andesite is the smooth variant of andesite which can only be obtained through crafting. It is mainly used as a decorative block for building. When it was originally a PE exclusive item, it had to be crafted by using a stonecutter instead of a crafting table. Mason villagers will sell polished andesite in exchange for emeralds. Polished Andesite has the same texture as Stone, but with some different colors.
