Common ore. It is a raw material which can be obtain from rocks.
Gathered from Stone veins Stack Size 100
Summary Stone is one of the core basic natural 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 great compressive strength, making it an exceptional choice as a foundation.
It is mined with the
smelted into Stone Bricks and Glass. It can also be used to produce Silicon Ore and Sulfuric Acid, if natural sources of those have not yet been found.
Each level of the
Veins Utilization upgrade increases the mining rate by a flat 10%, and reduces the consumption rate by a compounding 6%.

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.
