Skyroot Sign is a type of utility block found in the Aether.


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

Skyroot Signs can be used to display player-written text. Said text is white instead of black, unlike normal Signs. They may be placed on the top or side of blocks (including fences, chests, note blocks, etc by sneaking while placing).

Signs that are placed on top of a block stand on a short post and face the player who placed it, in any of the 16 possible directions. Signs placed on the side of a block float instead, even if the block is non-solid.


  • In the original The Aether mod, Skyroot Signs were not present.
