Artificial stone, called cast stone or industrial stone, is crafted by blending a natural sand mixture with an organic or inorganic binder. This mixture is then molded, cured, and polished to create various products.

Artificial stone offers the main advantage of consistency, simplifying its handling. Furthermore, it boasts high durability and costs less than mid- and high-end natural materials. As a result, it is often used in construction and design for surfaces such as kitchen countertops, floors, stairs, and interior wall cladding.
