One of the most popular stone veneer products is fieldstone. In New England, the fieldstone is weathered and primarily brown, tan, and grey in color, known as "Earth Tones". When originally harvested and used for walls or homes, this stone was often split to make it easier to work with. Rather than accept the split stone as waste, they would still use the split face for their building needs. Unlike fieldstone (Old New England Rounds or Wall), once split, fieldstone becomes unpredictably colorful. A product we call Split Fieldstone

I am excited to share the pictures of this interior stone fireplace a customer sent us. This was the final piece of the puzzle, as they moved into their new home and we were honored to be a part of it. There were some struggles along the way, but the important thing was everyone worked together to make sure this family had a fireplace they would be happy with for many years to come.

What Is New England Fieldstone Veneer?

If you are in the real stone veneer world you have been part of a conversation regarding “New England Fieldstone” or “CT Fieldstone” veneer. When people look at a fieldstone product versus a quarried stone they always ask: what’s the difference?

The simple answer is that a fieldstone is harvested from a field while a quarried stone is sourced from a quarry. New England Fieldstone is named because it is harvested from open fields and farms throughout New England. You may see some of it on a road trip in as a wall while others are scattered over acres of empty fields. Unlike a quarried stone, you can’t “dig” or “blast” for more fieldstone. Once the field has been harvested, that stone is gone. Forever.
