Are you

It

steals the sun's light,

and if you see it in the day it

just looks more like a stone.

    $\begingroup$ A good riddle has a unique answer, and yes, there seems to be one answer here which fits better than anything else. It's quite easy though: some harder riddles involve more different clues which less clearly point to a solution, so that it takes more time to figure out what that solution is, but there's still only one that fits everything. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 7, 2020 at 19:38

The answer could be

The moon
As it take the light of the sun and turns it into its own i.e. it reflects the light of the sun

And also it is not seen during the day so it can be said that it turns into a stone
or it is... well... made of stone

You could also be:

One of these:
Solar powered lights

I take the light

They are solar-powered

Turn it into my own

They emit light at night from energy collected during the day

Then at day

Turn to stone

They do not light up during the day, so are as useful as a stone.

Partial answer. I was thinking about:

Tree

I take the light

Turn it into my own

Trees take the light and feed on it through Photosynthesis. Hence, they convert the light into themselves.

Then at day

Turn to stone

Don't know.

  • $\begingroup$ For the 'turn to stone' part, maybe you could come up with an explanation having to do with petrification. I'm not sure how you could tie in 'day', though. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 8, 2020 at 13:29
