Aerogel is a type of block found in the Aether.

Obtaining

Aerogel requires a pickaxe to be obtained, in which when mined, it will drop itself. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing and be destroyed. Aerogel can be obtained by pouring Lava in the Aether.

Trivia

  • Aerogel is an actual material in real life, a gel where a component of it has been replaced with a gas. It is extremely lightweight, an excellent thermal insulator, yet very resistant to explosions, and has the lowest bulk density of any known porous solid in history. It is nicknamed frozen smoke, solid smoke, solid air, or blue smoke, and feels like expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) to the touch.
  • The Book of Lore description is misleading, as Aerogel can no longer be found in Dungeons
