Acclivity stone is mined by spacefaring species of the galaxy through nowhere portals. The scarcity of those portals makes obtaining it highly difficult, and the material itself very costly; a species with access to a nowhere portal can become exceedingly rich through mining acclivity stone.{{book ref|sky2|25}} However, despite its relative scarcity, acclivity stone is broadly used to provide lift to spaceships and space stations throughout all of the inhabited space, and has been used as such for generations.{{book ref|sky2|34}}

For starships and stations, the stone is fashioned into [[acclivity ring|rings]] that are attached to the underside of the vehicle.{{book ref|sky2|46}} The bigger the structure, the more acclivity rings it requires, with the largest structures necessitating hundreds of rings to keep them in orbit. Old acclivity rings can, however, be salvaged and reused, allowing for new ships to be fielded.{{book ref|sky1|25}}
