Stone is considered to be a material that embodies the permanence of memories. The colour of the stone can also affect the overall appearance of a gravestone. Nowadays there are plenty of beautiful colours to choose from to give a gravestone some character. We primarily use Finnish types of stone to make gravestones. Remember that stone is a natural material and variations in colour and patterning are normal.
Lilac Pearl is a dark, patterned type of stone that tends towards a burgundy colour. Light quartz strips occur in places in the stone. Lilac Pearl is quarried from Rautavaara.
Silver green is a medium-grey, flecked type of stone. The flecks are highly variable. Silver Green is quarried from Varpaisjärvi.
Diamond-brushed Silver Green
Diamond-brushing gives Silver Green a beautiful matte, natural finish and a slightly uneven surface structure. The variable flecked pattern gives each monument a unique appearance. Silver text and decorations are an excellent match for diamond-brushed Silver Green, but gold also goes well with this stone.
Green Sea is a dark, warm-green type of patterned stone. The pattern is largely even, so the overall appearance of the stone is calm. Green Sea is quarried from Kiuruvesi.
