The red stone matter should be very interesting and submitting more reviews also. The thread is more useful to me. It is helps for known new information about the seeds. The academic writing helpis very important for success in college writing papers make.
setblock is not possible to do that, maybe you can try:
editing the texture of redstone block, or
summon some FallingSand that rides on an ArmorStand with NoGravity:1b (however, you need to refresh FallingSand's Time as it will disappear after a few seconds. Also, the overlapped region may be flashing due to the rendering problem of minecraft)
