Natural Stone

Unfinished natural stone generally requires finishing before use. Bear in mind that finished stone needs to have a usable face, as well as the correct dimensions.

Cut Stone

This natural stone has been cut into a block, usually with all faces finished. Cut stone is therefore very expensive and seldom used extensively.

Pitched Faced Stone

This stone is cut to provide smooth sides for neat mortar joints, but with a rough face.

Reconstituted Stone

Made from crushed stone, sand and cement, reconstituted stones are molded to mimic natural stone.
