Freestone is a term used to describe any type of uniform stone that cuts well in all directions without shattering or splitting. It is typically used for molding, replication, tracery and other masonry work that requires the use of a chisel. Examples include finely grained limestone (sometimes referred to as chalky clunch) and certain types of sandstone.
