The Desert Castle pattern of Real Rock® Thin Stone Veneer features Brown Rubble Quartzite Sandstone – a type of naturally occurring Southern Appalachian Stone™ – arranged in a style reminiscent of old-world castle design. The stones in this pattern feature a natural cleft face finish, meaning each stone is split according to the naturally occurring layers. This type of finish showcases the unique texture of the stone face.

While the Desert Castle pattern is inspired by castle design, it has many modern applications. The rich color allows Desert Castle to be used to highlight existing architectural features, such as a fireplace or accent wall, or to create a breathtaking feature.

This pattern consists of square and strip pieces of authentic stone between 5 and 7 inches in face height. It is available in two depths – Thin Stone Veneer and Thick Wall Stone. Real Rock® Thin Stone Veneer is a thinner, lighter-weight option, typically about 1 ½ inches deep. It can be applied to virtually any surface without additional support. Thick Wall Stone is a full bed depth stone that can only be used on weight-bearing structures.

The stones in the Desert Castle pattern can be applied with visible mortar or as dry stack – without visible mortar. This pattern is a popular choice for both residential and commercial projects. These authentic stones are naturally weather resistant and can be used for indoor or outdoor applications.
