Storing Tamarind Paste

Quick question: I bought a block of tamarind for the first time this weekend. Once I start using it, how do I store the block? Can I still keep it in my pantry after I unseal it or should I refrigerate it in a jar? I worry that placing in the refrigerator would just make it harder but leaving it out might attract ants or let it spoil. How do you store your tamarind block?
