|Blast Resistance||>45 (needs testing)|
When a creeper blows up on Basalt or Basalt Bricks it will blow up only 0-1 blocks, making it a great building material.
Simple blast-chamber testing (building a 5x5x5 block with a hole in one side and TNT placed in the center then detonated) suggests that Basalt Brick has a higher blast restance than end stone. As end stone has a blast resistance of 45, Basalt Brick could be 60 or more, making it an attractive material to use for blast proof constructions.
Specific results after several rounds of testing each type were:
- End Stone averaged 26 blocks destroyed in a TNT detonation
- Basalt averaged 24 blocks destroyed
- Basalt Brick had only 22 blocks destroyed on average.
