A heavy conductive powder with a sparkly effect. In addition to usual spark conduction rules, silicon will register spark which is exactly four pixels up, down, left or right to the silicon pixel, but only if silicon has temperature below 100°C.


Molten stone together with coal or broken coal will turn into molten silicon with a 1/60 chance:

Molten silicon, when mixed with oxygen, randomly produces either molten sand, molten stone, molten clay dust or powdered quartz:

SLCN.png + 3×OXYG.pngSAND.png + STNE.png + CLST.png / PQRT.png

There is a 1/3 chance the result will be sand, a 1/3 chance the result will be stone, and a 1/3 chance it will be either clay dust or powdered quartz, where the latter is determined by temperature: if silicon is colder than 7446.3°C, then the result is molten clay dust, and molten powdered quartz otherwise.

Molten silicon also reacts with molten metal and broken metal:

In this reaction molten silicon is turned into molten NSCN and the other reactant into molten PSCN.
