Naturally generated[edit]

Stone makes up the majority of the solid blocks generated. When chunks generate, stone can be found under layers of grass and dirt in most biomes. It can also be seen exposed at the side of mountains in extreme hill biomes.

When the world is generating new chunks, some stone becomes ore, and almost every cavern and mineshaft will generate at stone level.

Water and lava[edit]

Stone can also be made by lava flowing on top of water, where the water will be replaced.
