Snow Blocks are blocks of pure snow made of 4 Snowballs similar to Sandstone. They only need a 2x2 crafting space, so a workbench isn't necessary. The process is irreversable unlike Iron Blocks or Gold Blocks. You can destroy a snow block with a shovel to obtain 4 snowballs though. Snow blocks are resistant to most variables that would melt snow in real life, such as Lava, Fire, and Torches. Snow Blocks have a texture similar to cobblestone, but in white form. Snow blocks are mainly used for decoration, or building with a winter theme, like a snow fort, or possibly an igloo.
Fill in a 2x2 space with snowballs.
