What is the difference between reconstituted stone veneers and natural stone?

Reconstituted stone veneer is cast from moulds, which makes it lighter than natural stone. Natural stone may require wall ties and footings, which, in turn, can increase installation cost and difficulty. Reconstituted stone veneers lighter weight, designed to adhere easily to a variety of structurally sound surfaces, and is capable of installations that would normally be very difficult and costly to achieve with natural stone.
