I have tried many blocks, including those that come in block packages such as kadence, spectra, etc. And this one does what I want, better than the others.

All required basic settings are available. It's better than "the icon block" in terms of big collection of icons already available in the library, insertion of custom SVG directly in the settings panel, and most important thing to handle any SVG as a section separator for making non-rectangular sections. And it's also ADA compliance. So a perfect choice when we need to add svg icons on a site.
