Coping Stone, Baluster Stone and Plinth
A baluster is a moulded shaft cut from a rectangular piece of stone and then can be turned on a lathe. They are then stood on a unified footing or plinth and support a parapet rail. Alternatively a stone parapet or handrail can form a staircase.
A balustrade consists of a top rail (also known as a coping stone), balusters and a bottom rail (also known as a unified footing or plinth).
A balustrade and all associated items can be made using various stone types.
