Monuments are usually made from natural stone, such as granite or marble, and are used to mark the final resting place of and honor a loved one. Granite is a very durable material and is now available in a wide array of colors. Quarries from all over the world are procuring granite for commercial and memorial use.
As a result of granite being mined all over the world, a rainbow of granite colors has made its way into the market place.
These samples are indicative of the color and character of the stone. Stone is a natural material that may vary slightly in color, have veins and natural discolorations and blemishes. The amount of variation is subject to the type of stone and current quarry conditions.

A medium gray with consistent color throughout. Fine crystals of various shades of blue gray and sparkling silver flecks in a background of light gray. This stone polishes to a sleek, glossy finish. Its tight grain provides a distinct contrast when sandblasted or frosted for panels and carving. The number one choice of monument stone due in part to its strength (40,000 PSI) and plentiful supply.
