Borax should be tier 2, not tier 3

Borax in <soft sedimentary rock> is a Tier 3 ore right now, requiring bronze tools. This is not great game design; right now if you've got some poor bastard with a copper pick, and he finds chalk/limestone, he's got leather armor!, but if he hits borax... he's screwed. They're both rare ores, it's purely a matter of luck which one you run into first. The only other use for borax is iron anvil welding, and you already need bronze tools to get the iron for that, so tier 2 vs. tier 3 has no effect on that case.

And of course IRL you can literally dig up borax with your bare hands. Mohs hardness 2.
