Glowing Block, also known as "Magic Ore", "Node" or "Shiny Block", is a block found in The End. It can appear as Obsidian, End Stone, Sponge and Wet Sponge (the last two not being able to be mined) and emits purple particles (considered Potion Particles by OptiFine). Mining shiny blocks will give you the achievement "Oh Shiny", worth 5 Hypixel achievement points. It will also drop loot.
