Stone is one of the four primary resources the player must collect for Age of Empires and Age of Empires II. Stone is mainly used to build static defenses like Towers and Walls, but it is also used for some units and technologies as well as Wonders. To obtain Stone, the player must send Villagers to collect them from the Stone Mine.

Ways to get stone


Stone can be purchased for Gold at the market in Age of Empires II. The market also contains crucial technologies that can increase the speed of mining stone from Stone Mines.


Stone mines are similar to Gold mines. They are not found in abundance on most maps and are usually found in groups of 2-5. Each one yields 350 Stone.
