fireplace remodel

I have a two story fireplace/chimney that currently is covered in fake marble and drywall. I want to redo the whole thing in dry stacked stone. My problem is--it has to be a fake stone that together with all wire, mortar, etc. can't excede 11 lbs/sq. foot. An architectural engineer has checked out the supports in our basement and has given me the max. of 11lbs/sq. ft. Any fake stone/applying materials I have looked at exceeds that. Any one know of a real looking fake stone that is very very light?

If you have no options finding light weight stone, can you look into heat tolerant paints with finishing techniques to look like stone?
