Question
what are the difference between stone masonry and brick masonry?

Answer
Dear Kishore

They are both masonry but stone is a natural material which can be synthetic too but the brick is globally cynthetic. Then the strength and engineering properties of the stone cant be tuned and designed but in the case of brick you can reach to a somehow definite properties you need.

Then in me opinion brick is more engineering!! than stone.
