Around the world there are many tales of which that speak of where there is a connection to the very essence of rock and mineral then Dwarves are to be found. Dwarves can be found nearly anywhere on or within/underground in mountains, hills, or cliffs in any kind of climate. Many dwarven clans or groups make their home around especially in mineral rich areas. There are even a few that favor volcanic areas and reside near some of the calmer lava pockets and make use of them for their needs.
The physical traits of dwarves also lends to the stories of their relationship with the earthen elements. The colors and textures of their skin and hair is similar to the various kinds of stones and minerals that exist within the earthen elements. This also why many dwarves seem quite hardy and tough thanks to their skin (this must be reflected in a skill).
All genders of dwarves grow very full and gorgeous facial hair, often in the form of beards and mustaches. The importance of facial hair is dependent on the individual dwarven group.
