Sand is a vanilla ore in Minecraft. Sand is a block naturally found on coasts and deserts. Sand has a very low blast resistance. Sand can be broken using any tool, but a shovel is the fastest. Sand generates naturally in many biomes of the Overworld, notably deserts, beaches, and rivers, generally in four-block-deep layers supported by stone and sandstone.
Red sand, is the sajme as sand except in colour and generates naturally in Mesa biomes and variants.
