Holystone Furnace is a type of utility block found in the Aether.


It does not require a pickaxe to be obtained, and so, will drop even if mined with bare hands, but mining it with a pickaxe is faster.

Holystone Furnaces share the same functional usage as normal Furnaces, but can also smelt Quicksoil into Quicksoil Glass. Holystone Furnaces cannot be moved by Pistons and do not give off light, unlike normal Furnaces.


  • In the original The Aether mod, Holystone Furnaces were not present. The original The Aether mod got around that issue by having some of its ore blocks either drop materials or be enchantable instead.
