The black stone is on the Corner of the Kaaba. Accessibility is very difficult as everyone would like to get there if possible. It is always full so I cannot recommend a good time to visit the Black stone

Touching or kissing the black stone is a good action if you can do it without hurting other people , but if you will kick and punch other Muslims to do so so it is better to stay away , you don't wanna upset Allah in front of his own home !

You can't find or mining this stone wherever on the earth, because this stone is not from this earth. They said the stone was white and bright. Area around the stone are so crowded, because a lot of people want to touch and kiss the stone.
