Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This block will be used in the soul sand valley biome as the block for basalt pillars and as the main block in the basalt delta biome.
- In 20w12a to get the Polished Basalt, you would have had to smelt regular basalt in a furnace. This is also the case on bedrock edition.
- In 20w16a Basalt will now generate naturally in Bastion Remnants.
- In 21w08a, Basalt can be smelt into Smooth Basalt by putting normal basalt in a furnace, or the outer layer of a Geode.
