Economic stones have special uses as ore, fuel or flux, or other uses like making special items. In technical terms, an economic stone is any stone which can be used as a reagent in any form of reaction. Obsidian is an exception, having been made an economic stone even though it is not used in any reaction - its specialty is that it can be used to craft swords.
- (In the same vein, bauxite is unique as a material for magma-safe mechanisms, but, oddly, is not listed within the economic stones menu as of version 40d, and so cannot be controlled in a similar fashion.)
- This is a list of non-ore stones only; see ore, or the article on that specific material, for more information.
