German term or phrase: Natursteinvorsatz
Hier zwei Definitionen aus dem Internet:

Moderne, hochwertige Betonsteine verfügen über eine Oberfläche, die aus einem Natursteinsplitt besteht. Naturstein ist dauerhaft farbbeständig und wesentlich verwitterungs- und abriebfester als Beton. Die so veredelten Betonsteine und Platten werden in verschiedenen Oberflächenqualitäten von glatt bis rau angeboten.

Natursteinvorsatz: Die Oberfläche des Steines
besteht aus edlen Natursteinsplitten, die in den verschiedensten Regionen Europas gewonnen werden.
Ihre Mischung verleiht der Oberfläche ein natürliches
und lebendiges Aussehen.

Nennt sich das einfach facing oder face, oder gibt es einen spezielleren Ausdruck?

Vielen Dank für die Hilfe!

English translation:natural stone finish
Explanation:
Natural stone facing might work but this suggests that a breeze block façade has been faced with natural stone. In this case it is the surface of the blocks that has received a ‘finishing’ treatment. (veredeln – to finish)
