Among the new blocks added in the Caves and Cliffs Part 1 update, there is a new transparent block, so we will see how to make stained glass in Minecraft. This glass is quite different from the other types of glass already in the game and should have some new and unique building applications.
How to make tinted glass
To start, you'll need to smelt normal glass with sand to use as the base for this new block. The second thing you will need to make this block is at least 4 Amethyst Shards. Amethyst shards can be collected from underground geodes, so put on your miner's hat and get to work gathering shards. And you'll also need a lot if you want to craft a lot of this new block, because you can only craft two pieces of stained glass at a time on the crafting bench. But once you have your materials, you can start by placing a single piece of glass in the middle of the crafting bench, then you just need to place four amethyst shards on each side of the glass block. This will create two pieces of stained glass for you to use as you wish.
A unique way to see through things
Now that you have your tinted glass, you may be wondering how it works. And it's simple, this glass blocks out all light while acting as a window through which you can see things. It's also unique in that you can pick it up using any tool, including your fists, no tang required this time around. Although a limiter of this block is that there is no pane variant, so it can only use the full block instead of the thinner variants in which other types of glass are available.
