Quality of life addition.

Quartz is very aesthetic but very hard to get unless it spawns on your town. Some cool builds require Quartz,but doesnt seem achievable rn to get stacks of it for builds
iirc, Igneous Processor can produce flint, and last time i check you can convert 4 flint into quartz in the basic machine called Pressure Chamber. It might be hassle to right click but it is the quickest way to get quartz.
But honestly, if anyone is aiming for like HUGE amount of quartz to BUILDING stuff, the process I mention may be the quickest but it is also very tiring. 4 flint dub = 1 quartz = even less quartz block. So for building it might not be really fun to do right clicking until you die. Even with custom biomes in nether. Towny also has this problem (plus towny doesnt have any custom biome). So to make it more balance since the reason for adding Quartz on Igneous Processor is for BUILDING reason then might as well just Quartz BLOCK instead. This is very balance since you cannot turn it back to quartz and you can only use it to build.
This is also not to make going to nether for quartz sake totally useless because quartz itself has some uses in redstone related crafts, sf machines, and other stuff. So if players want to get quartz for redstone/sf/other stuff then they can go farm it on nether. But if you really want to build stuff cause quartz type block look good(fr it looks nice) then get it from the machines(Since last time check the reason why igneous processor was added is to avoid unnecessary grinding/terraforming on lands for sake of building blocks)
@HumanError7 Oof my bad I literally forgot that it is used on Silicon, but are there other uses of quartz block besides silicon? Because the only use of silicon is to create Ferrosilicon and the only use of Ferrosilicon is to create Redstone Alloy Ingot in which Ferrosilicon isn't even the hardest part to make. So beside that (unless I miss some kind of custom recipe in SF in nations then ill probably not go forward) is adding Quartz block for the sake of building reason be imbalance?
