This page has a sub-page, Behavior, which covers technical details concerning block appearance.
Platforms are semi-solid blocks. The player can jump up through them, or fall through them by holding Down while falling.
The process of harvesting blocks using tools is called mining.
Natural blocks are any block type found on planets directly obtained by mining. This also includes ores.
In addition to all obtainable natural blocks, there are also ten varieties of Rough Stone used in planet generation which return Cobblestone when mined. These cannot be obtained without use of /spawnitem commands, and almost all of them have the same description, both in inventory (when spawned in) and on examination (the exception being Rock 14).
Natural blocks can also be used for construction, or as a crafting material to form other blocks, which can be used as construction materials.
There are building bricks that can be crafted and used in the construction of structures. The following are the blocks available through crafting.
*Platinum Blocks do not yet have a crafting recipe.
These blocks are unique because they slope when placed in groups, creating a smooth surface.

Village and Dungeon Blocks
Village and dungeon blocks are found in structures in all parts of the game. These blocks can be dislodged from these structures just like all other blocks, but in some dungeons a protection object must first be destroyed.
Village and dungeon blocks are able to be painted in the same way as crafted blocks.
These blocks exist - or used to exist - in the game assets. They are not obtainable through normal gameplay.
