The word stone cornice for those who are not familiar with the stone profession may mean tools made of stone or tools for working with stone. But here, in the discussion of building materials and facades, it is none of them. With a little look at the products list, you can understand the meaning of stone cornice in the stone profession and the construction industry. It should be mentioned that by searching for the word stone cornice in Google, you will find most of the results in the form of stone tools (old tools such as knives, spears, etc.), which may be because this is a general word.
Facade stone cornice can be in different materials. In the past, cement tools were mostly used, but today, with the advancement of technology and with the help of precise CNC and lathe machines, stone is used.

Also, it is made of stone itself, which creates a more integrated and beautiful structure.

These stone cornices are used at the top and bottom of columns, at the top of windows, the top of the building, entrances, etc. Also, they have a certain length and width. These stone cornices sometimes are produced by hand and sometimes by CNC machines.
