According to the Home Depot website, the manufacturer says 9 pounds, which is for a piece about 8 square feet. About 1 pound, 2 ounces per sg ft.

We have both trim and panels with a finished detailed edge. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's talk about your project.
We have corners that are 24" tall and premolded to make a corner that is ready accept another panel.
When installing over brick, you would need to use a PL-200 (premium construction adhesive that is polyurethane safe) on the backs of the panels and place a couple of Tapcons (concrete screws) in each panel to hold them in place while the glue cures. Over time, it is ultimately the adhesive that will hold the panels.
Samples are available for purchase at homedeopt.com or genstone.com
The R-value is 3.6 per inch of thickness.
The images on HD's website is just a copy of 1 panel. There are 4 different panel molds and they number them on the top shiplap so that you can stagger them easily. They alternate the colors within a mold too so if you get 12 panels and have three #1 panels, the stone shape will be the same but the color will be different.
