Oil sand is an uncommon ore.
Oil sand occurs fairly uncommonly in deserts and similar biomes, in veins between sand, sandstone and stone blocks. It is found at almost any altitude (layers 10-80). It occurs in fairly large deposits, almost as large as deposits of coal ore.
Oil sand also more rarely occurs in much larger deposits underground (layers 30-60), surrounding a small amount of crude oil.
Oil sand must be mined with a stone pickaxe or better. It drops one piece of bitumen when mined. More bitumen is dropped if a Fortune enchanted pickaxe is used. Oil sand itself can be obtained by mining it with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe.
When oil sand is broken, some crude oil comes flowing out. This oil cannot be picked up and eventually disappears.
