Monument Materials, Finishes, and Techniques


There are three basic types of materials that are used to create monuments.

Granite is the most commonly used material and is available in lots of colors such as, but

not limited to: traditional grays, blacks, a variety of reds, pinks, browns, greens, and

near whites.

Marble has been used for centuries and is well known for its traditional beauty. White is

the most popular color used in monuments and typically has various degrees of gray “veining”

adding to its attractiveness.

Bronze is called the “eternal metal” and is used for flat markers, statuary, and as

ornamentation in combination with granite and marble.


Monuments come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. In some instances the name

given to a particular style may vary by region or country. In USA market, it is name is slant memorials,
while in european country, it will be tombstone.


Modern technology now allows monuments to be shaped, quite literally, into any form you can

envision. Techniques such as sandblasting, shape carving, laser and hand etching, now allow

intricate scenes and portraits to be placed onto the stone.
