(Absolute) Black The classic jet black granite. Provides
the greatest contrast between memorial and inscription.
Black The same material as above, but with a half
polished (matt) finish. This mid grey material looks
almost identical to natural slate, but unlike slate,
it will not laminate over time.
African (Dark Grey) Our second most popular granite. Dark grey
colour with visible grain.
Red (Ruby Red) One of several red granites we supply. A
coarser grain than South African grey.

a granite) is one of only a few that shows banding.

Pearl This coarse grained granite from Norway,
has a dark blue-grayish background with glimmering
light blue crystals which reflect the light.
Brown Baltic Brown is a deep brown granite that
features large beige color crystals throughout.
This granite is quarried in Finland.
