With the Minecraft Trails and Tales update, there are a lot of new features for players to get familiar with. The new archaeology items add a new layer to the gameplay that wasn’t there before. That said, you can’t just go anywhere and find these ancient items. Here is how to find Suspicious Sand and Gravel in Minecraft.
Where to find Suspicious Sand in Minecraft
To find Suspicious Sand in Minecraft, you will need to search in specific locations. In Desert biomes, they can be found underneath water blocks in Desert Wells and at the bottom of Desert Pyramids. In Warm Ocean biomes, they can be found around Ruin structures. The Suspicious Sand found in Warm Ocean Ruins is the only place you can find Sniffer Eggs.
Whenever you come across Suspicious Sand, use a Brush on it. If you break it apart with any other tool, it will be destroyed for good, and you will not get any potential item hidden inside. Even if you have Silk Touch, it will be broken.
