Typically, cultured stone is concrete, molded into many different shapes. Then, with Cascade Stone’s innovative process, we blend colors into the stones using permanent oxides and natural pigments. The colors are integral to each stone, and are not simply a surface tint like with other companies. We create various, beautiful hues in order to achieve the most natural look possible.
