Most common uses for these stones are sculptures, table lamps, door handle/knobs, extracts of the same are often seen used on table tops, furniture carvings and so on.
As opposed to natural stones, gemstones and rocks, man-made stones are the products of synthetic creation of the same chemical composition in laboratories. Though these stones don’t have natural history their primary advantage is affordability and colour uniformity. Cubic Zirconia, Swarovski, Synthetic Ruby, etc. are a few examples.
