Granite is ranked 7 on the Mohs hardness scale of 1 to 10. It is one of the hardest known materials of mankind but does need to be cleaned periodically. Designs are made into the granite's hard surface by either sandblasting or etching.
*Sandblasting - a much deeper cut in the granite and can be either flat or shape carved. Examples of shaped carvings would be praying hands and flowers, especially roses.
*Etching - this is done by laser and only takes off the top polished layer of granite. You can choose from their collection of designs or bring in a picture or portrait that you want etched on the memorial. (recommended for black granite only)
Bronze memorials are cast from the highest quality metals. There are many designs to choose from, as well as emblems to personalize your memorial.
*Lasting Memories - You can take personal family pictures, up to 6, and they are embedded into the bronze for a truly unique memorial.
*Matching Veteran's Memorials - Duplicate memorials can be made for spouses or other family members.
