Cinderpearls are part of the Thaumcraft mod. These plants can be found in the desert, spawning rarely on sand blocks. When broken, they will yield one blaze powder. When broken with shears the cinderpearl plant can be obtained. This can be useful for players who are using the Thaumic Bees mod which requires either cinderpearl or shimmerleaf plants in order to carry out their life cycle, or for players wanting to take advantage of their aesthetic properties.
