Sandblock resistors are rectangular. Three sides look the same; the fourth looks like it is filled with concrete.
When sandblock resistors get overloaded, they are quick to fail. While that may sound like a negative feature, there are times that you need a resistor to cut out like a fuse when overloaded. Sandblock resistors fill that need.
