All New Blocks in Minecraft Caves & Cliffs

For ease of use, anything in bold is new to Caves & Cliffs and should have a link for more information. Here's every new block in the next update.

  • Amethyst buds - what happens as amethyst grows. This is what it starts as. It then goes on to become an Amethyst cluster, which can be mined for amethyst shards. This can be combined to make a block of amethyst. The budding amethyst is currently unobtainable in survival mode.
  • Tinted Glass - can be gained through the crafting of amethyst shards and glass. It blocks out light to an area.
  • Azalea - a pretty, decorative block that grows on top of Moss. You can then find Azalea Leaves on the new azalea tree. Moss Carpets look like moss but they're much smaller
  • Rooted Dirt - a decorative dirt block you can find.
  • Smooth Basalt - another decorative block earned by smelting basalt.
  • Big dripleaf - a new plant that grows in caves that can be climbed and used as a platform. You can also find a Small Dripleaf.
