Types and Other Necessary Details About Crushed Stone

Crushed stone is nothing but rock pieces produced from several rock faces or mountains. In today’s world, these have become the most easily available raw material for making houses, buildings, roads, for agricultural purposes, between the railroad tracks, and other industrial works. Due to its wide variety of usage and despite the low Price of Crushed Stone (ราคา หินคลุก, Which is the term in Thai), it is an important factor as far as a country’s economic growth is concerned.  Mostly they are used in construction works alongside the sand, cement, etc. Also, it is such an important commodity that is needed in almost all kinds of built-up.

Types Of Crushed-Stone And Rock Types Used For Them

Crushed stones are made by crushing or mining several types of rocks like granite, dolomite, basalt, limestone, etc. Depending on their usage they are crushed and screened to different sizes. The multiple rock types used to get the crushed-stone are suitable for some specific uses and unsuitable for other purposes. A brief description of this rock is given below:


It is the most commonly used rock type to get crushed-stone. Depending upon its varieties of usage, this stands at the top. It is available widely. It is used to make crushed stone because it is easily breakable. Moreover, it is lighter in weight than the metal used to crush the stones. So it is more user-friendly to the machines and causes less wear on the equipment.

Dolomite Limestone:

Although it is very similar to the limestone, yet it is slightly different because of its components. It is a bit heavier than the limestone and known as dolomitic stone. Due to its hardness, it is very durable. They are used in chemical factories for acid neutralization, in the blast furnace and for other agriculture.

Granite And Trap Rock:

Granite is a type of light-colored igneous rock used for construction purposes. Traprock is oppositely dark-colored igneous rock used for the same purpose. They are the second and third most commonly used rocks to produce crushed stones.


There are also other materials like sandstone, quartzite, scoria, etc. to produce crushed-stones. They are transported via trains and lorries. So, the Price of Crushed Stone varies because their transportation becomes costlier than production. So, in most of the countries, they are produced and marketed locally. Depending upon the government projects and infrastructure of a country’s development, the demand varies for each country. Moreover, angular crushed stones are heavily used for road making.
