Picking out stone to go behind corner wood stove install. Going to install and Jotul Castine 400. Depending on wall design (unprotected versus protected w/ 1" air gap). If using the protected wall design the stove will be sitting pretty close to whatever product I install. Question: Anyone have any pros/cons over using real stone versus man-made (cement) stone? The real stone manufacture says they think their product is best for the application mainly due to it not changing color with the heat over time. The man-made stone manufacture says their stone will hold up fine in this application. As far as looks the man-made stone has more options for my taste - which is more of a roundish look as opposed to a stacked flat slate look. Seems in real stone most options are of the flat style.
