Dwarf Fortress damp stone
Unfortunately, the page this search linked to doesn't explain Dwarf Fortress's use of a damp stone.
When you get a notification of a damp stone, it interrupts the dig action of your miner dwarf. To understand why this happens, imagine you are digging with a pick into a rock wall. You chip away some rock, and notice that the rock has a small stream of water trickling down. You strike the rock again, and notice more streams of water. This is a damp stone. You strike it again at your watery peril.
