Dry Stack Veneer consists of laying the stone tight together without any mortar showing on the face of the stone. The mortar is held to the back and behind the stone. This type of veneer is as strong as the natural veneer, in fact, it requires more mortar to lay this type of stone. The photos below are examples of Dry-Stack.
