How to Get Stones Fast

The Best Source is Rocks on Mystery Tours

ACNH - A resident farms for material while on a mystery tour

The best way to get Stone is by hitting rocks on the islands you visit on Mystery Tours, the tours you can go on by using the Nook Miles tickets.

Remember to bring axes or shovels to hit the rocks with!

Mystery Island Tours and Nook Miles Ticket Guide

Mystery Tour Islands have 3 Rocks

You can only get Materials from the Rocks on your island a limited times per day, but you always have unlimited chances of finding them so long as you keep going on Mystery Island Tours.

Dig holes behind you to get the most materials

ACNH - Digging two holes to hit the rock the maximum amount of eight times

If you dig two holes behind you when you gather the various stones from rocks, you can avoid being bounced back too far, allowing you to hit the rock repeatedly to yield the maximum number of materials.

Get Stones From Your Own Island

The next best way to get stones is by hitting the rocks in your own town with an axe or shovel.

The Materials are random

You can find a variety of materials from hitting rocks, such as Clay, Stone and Gold Nuggets, but all of them have a random chance of dropping. Stones have a pretty high chance of dropping.

Catch them when fishing

You can even catch stones when fishing. Sometimes what looks like a small fish will turn out to be a stone!
