Gravel is a common block found underground. Like sand, it is affected by gravity.
Gravel is fairly common. It can be found underground at any level in large veins.
If gravel has no block underneath it, it will fall down until it has a solid block to support it. If it falls on a non solid block like a torch, it will drop as an item.
