To turn concrete powder into solid concrete, the concrete powder needs to come in contact with water. This whole process requires a source block or running water. The concrete powder becomes solid as soon as it is placed next to the water. Remember that This water should not of rain, cauldrons, and bottled water. After placing it into the water it will immediately turn into solid concrete. After this process, the block appears much less grainy and with a brighter color.

Concrete is a bright solid block that is used to make new buildings. Apart from this, it can also be used as a decorative material in Minecraft. Its hardness is slightly higher than that of stone, so it is much better than stones for fortification. But at the same time, its explosion resistance is less than that of stones.
