Sand is a commonly used block in Eden. This block is one that has a texture similar to sand. The block is tan and looks rough, like sandpaper. However, it does not have any other of the attributes that sand has in real life. Sand replaced the Wool Block in 1.5 update when painting was added. Users often use Sand to make beaches, lakes, pools, and sometimes carpet (by coloring the sand a different color). Users sometimes make snow by painting Sand white.


  • Sand is frequently used to make carpet, snow, or humans.
  • This block has replaced the wool/cloth block, as of v1.5.
  • Sand, like many other blocks, does not have a natural color that can replicated once painted.
  • It is excellent for making beaches and deserts.
  • They create a shuffling sound when stepped on, as if they were carpets which they are commonly used for.
  • Sand can be found in beach biomes post-2.0.
