Peat blocks are found in soil deposits where they replace several layers of soil blocks. Peat bricks are dropped when a player breaks peat. A shovel is the fastest tool available to harvest peat, but an empty hand may be used.
Bricks are used as a fuel in the firepit, but cannot be used to create the firepit. Peat burns at a temperature high enough to burn pottery items made using the clay forming mechanic, and prepare meals in cooking
Peat bricks may be carried in player inventory, or stored in stationary containers. Peat bricks may also be stored in stacks on a block. Multiple stacks of peat bricks can be placed on top of each other. See resource crafting for instructions on adding/removing peat bricks to/from stacks.
Peat bricks are technically blocks. However, a special block called peat pile is formed when peat is placed into the world. In the assets Tyron commented on the peat brick's block-hood: "There's no real reason why this is a block. Should be an item instead"
