This article pertains to the block. For the wall, please see Glass Wall.

Glass is a block that can be used to make items such as Bottles. As of update 1.2, you must use a Pickaxe to break glass.


  • Placed Glass acts as a window, letting light pass through it.
  • If you connect two Glass blocks together, they fuse. There is no line in between them, making Glass a favorite building tool to use when making an expensive looking home.
  • Glass Furniture is crafted at a Glass Kiln.
  • You can even make a castle entirely out of glass in a snow biome to make it look like a snow castle.
