Stone is one of the core basic resources. Found commonly throughout the galaxy, it can be harvested and processed on almost any rocky planet. Stone is an impure form of silicon, and can be refined with enough effort. Stone has has great compressive strength, making it an exceptional choice as a foundation.
It is mined with the Mining Machine.

Player Tips & Tricks
- Stone can also be collected manually by the mech, from the rocks and pebbles strewn across planets.
- While Stone can be smelted into Silicon Ore, it is a very slow and inefficient process and should be replaced by direct mining of Silicon Ore as soon as possible.
- Similarly, Sulfuric Acid should be pumped from a world with a Sulfuric Acid Ocean once one is discovered, replacing a reasonably complex creation process.
