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.
The Aarni type of stone combines dark green and brown tones with shiny, bluish flecks in between. The pattern is largely even, so the overall appearance of the stone is calm. Aarni is quarried from Kiuruvesi.
