Stained Glass is a decorative variant of a regular glass block, but it has a colored "tint" added to it. They were added to Minecraft in update 1.7.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Stained glass is made by placing 8 glass in a crafting table with any color of dye in the center. It is used primarily as decoration. The color of the stained glass depends on which color dye a player uses. Arranging 6 stained glass blocks in a crafting table will make a stained glass pane of that color of Stained glass. Stained glass can come in the following colors:
