Natural Generation

Twenty types of rock variants may exist in the world, and are created during world generation. The appearance of each block indicates the type, which dictates its uses and which ore deposits may be found in the rock. As of version 1.9, ores only appear in certain rock types. Examining a rock while holding (Sneak + H), will provide information about which ores can appear in that rock type.

Stone Types

Different types of rock are found in different places in the world and vary based on geological layers. Rock types that exist include Andesite, Basalt, Bauxite, Chalk, Chert, Claystone, Conglomerate, Granite, Halite, Kimberlite, Limestone, Marble, Obsidian, Peridotite, Phyllite, Sandstone, Scoria, Shale, Slate, Suevite and Tuff. Each of the 20 types of rock appears as a different color and offers a wide range of material options for construction. Marble is an exception as this one rock type exists in three variants: it may be white, pink cream or green.

Grass Variants

Rock/Stone does not have a grass coverage variant and always appears bare when exposed to the surface.

Harvesting

All rock requires a pickaxe to mine.

Collecting Small Stones

Press Left Mouse Button on the block using the pickaxe to break/harvest the block. When mined, solid rock blocks drops small stones.

Relieving Stone Blocks

Solid stone blocks can be collected through a process called "relieving". To relieve a stone block, break the stone blocks connected to each face of the stone block, such that all six faces of the cube are adjacent to air. Currently, stones do not obey gravity.

Uses

Stone Blocks

The quern may only be created from stone blocks including andesite, basalt, granite or peridotite. Stone blocks are used to craft building materials including stone bricks. A polished variant can be created using a hammer and chisel in the crafting grid, and polished stone may also be split to create slabs. It is important to note that some types of stone cannot be polished or used to create slabs, including: Bauxite, Halite, Kimberlite, Obsidian, Scoria, Suevite and Tuff.

Small Stones

Stone tools made by knapping small stones can only be created from andesite, basalt, granite, peridotite, or obsidian. Most types of small stones can be used to create construction materials including cobblestone blocks and stone path blocks. It is important to note that some types of stone cannot be used to create cobblestone or stone bricks, including: Bauxite, Halite, Kimberlite, Marble, Obsidian, Scoria, Suevite and Tuff.

Special Use Small Stones

Some small stones can be converted to useful powders by crushing with a hammer in the crafting grid, or grinding in the quern.

  • Chalk and Limestone small stone powder creates lime for leather working.
    • Lime powder, when (2) heated, produces (1X) quicklime used in creating mortar, or plaster blocks.
  • Halite small stone powder creates salt for food preservation.
  • Chalk and Limestone small stones may be used (intact) as pigments to label signs.
