Flint?

How do you find flint? I've read that you have to dig up gravel but I've been playing for 15 odd hours and have dug a lot if gravel but have never seen one piece. This is my first ever Minecraft save so go easy on me with my simple question.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Gravel. Just keep trying, it doesn't come out of it very often.
Although the sky is blue, it's always black.

It has a 1/10 chance to pop out of a gravel block. Just keep trying :P

Thank you. While I'm here, what about clay? It's another material I haven't seen yet. I've tried digging up sand but just hit sandstone and cobblestone. Thanks.

fyi- you can place gravel and mine it again to get flint, it looks like an arrowhead btw, I find it very hard to believe you played for 10+ hours without getting any, maybe you just mistook it for coal or something in your inventory.

In this version, clay is kinda glitched, and appears far less than it should. It is found in swamp and ocean biomes, mostly under shallow water.

I think it was because I was using a pick and not a shovel.

Shovel is not needed, I usually don't carry a shovel, I just punch it.
