Skyrim Quarried Stone - Where to Find

Welcome to the land of Skyrim and the Hearthfire expansion! If you’ve never played this expansion before, then you are in for a heck of a change.

One of the newest materials that you will need to find is Quarried Stone, a common crafting item that you will gather all of the time. But, if you don’t know where to grab it, then you’ll be at a loss. Let’s find this specific type of rock together!

Quarried Stone in Skyrim can be obtained by using a pickaxe on Stone Quarry sources all across the realm. These sources are scattered across every area, and each source can provide around 4,000 items before running out. Quarried Stone is used for several homestead items, including the Blacksmith’s Forge, Grindstone, Mead Barrels, and Armorer Workbench.

There are loads of places that have the stone quarry. These include the following homesteads:

  • Heljarchen Hall
  • Lakeview Manor
  • Windstad Manor

These are perhaps the easiest quarries to farm,  since they are right next to your home of choice.

However, they are far from the only places that you can farm. The following locales also contain at least one quarry:

  • Battle-Born Farm, Whiterun
  • Bilegulch Mine
  • Black-Briar Lodge
  • Darkwater Crossing
  • Dawnstar
  • Dragon Bridge
  • Embershard Mine
  • Falkreath
  • Half-Moon Mill
  • Hall of the Vigilant
  • Hlaalu Farm
  • Ivarstead
  • Karthwasten
  • Katla’s Farm
  • Kynesgrove
  • Markarth
  • Morthal
  • Northwind Mine
  • Pinewatch
  • Riverwood
  • Rorikstead
  • Sacellum of Boethiah
  • Shor’s Stone
  • Whitewatch Tower
  • Winterhold

The Stone can be used to create Armor Mannequins, Cellars, Foundations, Floors, Forges, Grindstones, Mead Barrels, Shrines, Fireplaces, Smelters, and Workbenches. As such, if you want your home to exist at all, you will want to farm Quarries for this item. You can’t make a cellar without it!

You shouldn’t need to deplete more than one quarry for all the items you need for even all three homes. 4,000 is a lot of stone, and most recipes won’t require more than a couple. But, you can spam the pickaxe at one location if you think you will be making many of these items and changing things around.
