Colors & Types of Granite

Most memorials today are made from granite.

Granite is made up of quartz, which gives it luster, hardness, and durability. Mica gives granite its sparkle, and feldspar makes up the rest.

We offer many different colors of granite from which to choose. There are several reasons why granites differ in price.

When a block of granite is removed from the ground, there is a certain amount of waste.

With some granite, the waste factor will be much larger than others.

Granite is quarried in the United States as well as Norway, Africa, Sweden, Canada and other locations around the world.
