Description

 

Masonry blocks with roughly textured or carved outer faces and recessed joints.  All have particular mortar joints – these can be flush with the stone, V-shaped, concave (known as rodded), etc.  Some imitations are simply plasterwork posing as stone.  Banded rustication has horizontal joints but no vertical joints.  More examples of chamfered rustication appear here.
