bee na while since your post but if you are talking about that "faux stone" product builders use on houses instead of stone...then I have seen it used in/on/near fish ponds outside....does this make it aquarium safe....no, but maybe worth checking in to ...call the manufacturer of the company you are looking to buy from to be sure///would like to see it done though

I have a 255 gallon set up now 2 years with Tanganyikans. I have had no problems with any water peramiters due to use of these stones. I applied each stone to the glass surface using a silocone bead around the outside edge of the stone. I thought this would help prohibite food and waste build up behind the stones. It appears to have worked to date. I will try to post a digital photo in the future. I did find that there is a huge choice of colors and styles of stone to work with.
