Diorite is a block added in Snapshot 14w02a for Minecraft. It is found underground at any level and appears bright white with cracks, almost like Cobblestone. It is purely decorative and does not have any special properties.


  • Two Cobblestone and Two Nether Quartz in an alternating formation in your 2x2 crafting grid gives you 2 Diorite.

  • Four in a square makes 4 Polished Diorite.


  • Diorite has already been realeased in the Pocket Edition 0.9.0 update, along with Andesite and Granite.
  • Andesite and Grandite are a lot like Diorite, and can be turned into a polished block the same way Diorite can.
