Though mixtures and casting techniques vary between manufacturers, cast
stone is generally made from a mixture of finely graded aggregates such as
limestone, marble, granite and quartz, silica sand, and a bonding agent.
Extremely durable and versatile, it is available in any color and can closely
replicate a wide range of nat-
ural stones including limestone, bluestone, slate, gran-
ite, travertine and marble. More About Cast Stone
