DescriptionMinecraft Rocks and Minerals: Andesite
Andesite is an igenous extrusive rock, meaning it extruded from a volcano and formed by cooling. The cooling happens quickly resulting in small mineral grain sizes. These rocks are mainly feldspar and amphibole group minerals with very little quartz and pyroxene. Andesite is not found in the bottom of igloos or caves like in the game.
