Can't carbon date most stone, because...well, it contains no carbon.

However, organic artifacts from the surrounding soil layers can certainly be carbon-dated. But if the soil strata are disturbed, of course stone artifacts can't be mated with the ones in their time frame, because the frame has been jumbled.
