How to Get Stones Fast

The Best Source is Rocks on Mystery Tours

Tour Rocks
The best way to get Rocks 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 Tour Islands have 3 Rocks

The islands you go to on Mystery Tours will always have 3 rocks where you can get materials, as opposed to the 1 or 2 on your own island, so the chance of getting nuggets is better.

Also, once you've hit a rock on your island, you won't be able to get new materials from it until next day, but Mystery Tour islands will give you fresh rocks every time you go, so you can get as many materials as you want in a day.

Dig holes behind you to get the most materials

Dig Holes Behind You
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.

Next, get stones from your own island

The next best way to get stones is by hitting the stones 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.
