Cast stone or (reconstructed stone as it is sometimes called) is a highly refined form of precast concrete, used as masonry and intended to simulate natural-cut stone. It is used often used for architectural items such as trims, ornaments, building facing buildings, statuary and garden ornaments. Cast stone can be made from various coloured cements, manufactured or natural sands, crushed stone or natural gravels, and colored with mineral coloring pigments. Cast stone can be used to replace natural building stones such as limestone, brownstone, sandstone, bluestone, granite, slate, coral, and travertine.
