Over-world Boulders

Granite Boulder icon.png Granite Boulders and Stone Boulder icon.png Stone Boulders are found scattered across the surface of the New World or alternatively removed from Mountain icon.png Mountains and Quarry icon.png Quarry using Any Shovel icon.png Any Shovel and Dig icon.png Dig.

From left to right, 100x, 25x, 15x, 10x and 5x Lime pieces.

With the Quarrying Skill learned, and Any Shovel icon.png Any Shovel equipped, you can Dig icon.png Dig Lime Boulder icon.png Lime Boulders from a Lime Pit icon.png Lime Pit. Lime Boulders come in variable sizes, with the bigger Lime Boulders giving more Lime icon.png Lime when Chipped, ranging from 5 up to 100. The size of your Lime Boulder is based on chance, your Mines & Mountains icon.png Mines & Mountains Proficiency, and whether or not you have learned the Ambitious Excavation Skill. Rarely you will Dig up a very small Lime Boulder. Chipping this Lime Boulder will give you a single Little Limestone icon.png Little Limestone. When used in place of Lime in a Ore Smelter icon.png Ore Smelter, a Little Limestone will increase the number of Bar of Any Metal icon.png Bar of Any Metal that are produced. Each Lime Boulder Dug from a Lime Pit will lower the terrain slightly. If the terrain is too step you will be unable to Dig further, making it possible to exhaust a Lime Pit of Lime.
