Aerogel is a type of block found in the Aether.

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 solid where 96% of it's molecular components is composed from a gas that has been intensively compressed. It is extremely lightweight (some forms such as graphene aerogels are many times lighter than air), an excellent thermal insulator, and has the lowest bulk density of any known porous solid in history, although is both brittle and soluble. 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
