How does crushed stone differ from gravel?

Crushed stone is often compared and sometimes mistaken for gravel. As you can gather from the name, crushed stone is stone that has been crushed. Most crushed stone is produced in quarries and is crushed when machinery breaks up larger rocks. While crushed stone is produced with man-made machinery and processes, gravel is produced naturally through weathering and water transport. Additionally, gravel has a rounded shape and smooth texture. Yet, crushed stone often has angular and jagged edges due to its crushing process.

What color is this rock?

Our Rock Candy is available in colors ranging from pinks, grays, and purples. This array of colorful hues presents you with plenty of options or aesthetics you can go with. There’s a subtle or earthy tone associated with gray stones. The neutrality of gray allows it to be paired with other colors and decor. On the other hand, the pinks and purples can really make your property pop. Overall, Rock Candy stones can really elevate the visual appeal of your property.
