What Is The Appearance Of Ceramic?
Ceramic isn’t a natural material, so you need to make it. When finished, it’ll look like an oversized piece of mud with several hexagonal pillars. It’s not going to help in finding it, however. You’ll need to be on the lookout in search of Clay. It can be a challenging thing to locate when you require it.
In its natural form, Clay will rise over the surface, resembling huge rocks. This makes it difficult to distinguish from actual stones, which aren’t something that you can mine. The clay veins generally extend into the underground depths, and a single batch of Clay will last quite a while…unless you’re incredibly fortunate and only find a handful of pieces.
