Generally  made  from a durable con-
crete  blend  such  as glass fiber re-
inforced concrete,
  it   is  lighter  in weight . . . . . AND your wallet . . . . than natural stone.    However, with
the  variety  of  finishing techniques available  today  in  the  hands  of a master concrete artisan, it is virtual-
ly  impossible  to  distinguish  it from natural stone in instances when that
is the desired effect.




The following examples show a range of different natural stone looks achievable with concrete . . . . .

including honed or polished granite and travertine . . .

The  following  two starkly contrasting images show some of the ways in which custom fireplace mantels fabricated from concrete can be molded, shaped and finished. While the striking mantel on the left is heavily ribbed and finished to match the color and texture of the metal insert, the equal-
ly striking mantel on the right has extremely smooth surfaces and is fin-
ished to resemble highly polished slabs of natural stone.
