The term stone is used in Great Britain to describe the weight of a person or animal. Like many units, the stone often varied in actual weight until it was standardised at 6.35 Kilogram, according to the University of North Carolina. When used as a unit, the term "stone" is used even when discussing the plural. Kilograms are a unit used around the world to quantify mass. You can use conversion factors to convert from kilograms to stone.
