But you can’t obtain them with stone equipment, you need a particular type of equipment to get them. Luckily, some of them aren’t far from the best base locations, so you can mine them, whenever you need to craft modern tech and items like Camera and Polymer. Plus, apart from the Obsidian, most locations have other materials like Crystal and Metal.
