Crushed stone is a construction aggregate. At a glance, it looks similar to gravel. However, gravel is rounded and eroded naturally over time, while crushed stone is mined and then crushed into specific sizes to suit a variety of practical applications.
Because crushed stone can be made from nearly any type of hard stone,it is a highly sustainable resource. The most common types of rock used arelimestone,argillite,washed gravel,granite,traprockandquartzite. Union Quarries uses limestone to produceAASHTO #10 and other grades of crushed stone, as this material is abundant in Pennsylvania.
Grades of crushed stone are categorized by the size of the fragments after the stone has been crushed.AASHTO #10 aggregate is on the lower end of the scale, as it is ground very finely to create dust.
