Stone is an often-used building material in the construction of buildings, paths and many other things.
 Naturally generated
After air, stone is the second most common block found in a normal map, making up the majority of the solid blocks generated. When chunks generate, stone can be found under layers of grass and dirt in most biomes, mycelium in mushroom islands or under layers of sandstone in deserts. It can also be seen exposed at the side of mountains in extreme hill biomes.
Stone can be successfully mined with any type of pickaxe and will drop cobblestone, which is used in many crafting recipes and as a sturdy building material. Stone can also be successfully mined with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch and will then drop one stone block. Stone takes slightly less time to mine than cobblestone, meaning cobblestone generators are a less efficient way to obtain cobblestone.
