|Block of Snow|
|Type of Block||Solid Block|
Snow is a full-sized block version of the snow cover. It is crafted from 4 Snowballs, allowing the player to create it through their inventory crafting window. One may not reverse the crafting process, but the block may be placed and destroyed with a shovel, yielding 4 snowballs.
Snow blocks are not destroyed by forces that would realistically melt snow or which do melt snow cover, such as lava, fire, and torches, and are unaffected by water. However, they are easily destroyed by explosions.
Snow blocks have many applications, such as building, decoration, and storing snowballs. They blend in well with the taiga and the tundra (ice plains) biomes, and can be used to build snow-themed buildings, such as igloos or snow castles. Snow may still fall on them, making them look bigger than they really are. One of the most popular uses is for the production of Snow Golems.
- When a snow block is on grass, before it turns the grass into dirt, the grass changes as if a snow layer was on it.
