Found cheap concrete "tiles" with metal bars- What are they?


Hi I found a bunch of concrete stone-looking tiles. They're about 3/4 of an inch thick and about 1'x2'

They are solid, HEAVY and have metal bars attached to the end.

I figure they were for a faux solid stone brick entrance or something? Maybe the metal is for hangng them? OR they metal also makes them into a raised patio, so if I put them over concrete or a wood deck, it would make it seem like a stone-brick patio? Not sure.

Anyways I was thinking of using them for landscaping. I was thinking of using a decomposed granite path and using these as stepping stones in between. As far as that, what would you recommend for a base? Gravel then Sand?

I got it from the local Habitat Humanity ReStore which is like a salvation army or goodwill for home improvement.
