Freestone

Richard H. Ryder, 2018

A freestone is a stone used in masonry for molding, tracery, and other replication work required to be worked with the chisel”. Freestone is fine grained and freely cut in any direction, and because it is uniform and relatively soft it will not shatter when cut or split. To some, the term Freemasonry refers to operative masons who worked in freestone, hewn from the quarry.
