As to its name field stones occur naturally and are found on the surface of fields. Field stone is usually more rounded, with sizes that can vary between large boulders and fist size
Man-made concrete stones can make attractive walls, and some are manufactured with rough, natural-looking edges to simulate natural rock. Concrete stones are uniform in size, so they are not only less expensive than natural stone but also easier to work with.
Just to add in an extra, man made bricks even though are actually pottery and not stone or made made stone, still give that rustic feel raw feeling that stone does. Easy to find, not too expensive and easy to work with.
