Why Should you select a Marble or Granite Cremation Urn?
For centuries man use used marble to create beautiful pieces of art, architecture, and even functional home decor. Marble is described as a metamorphosed limestone or even calcite or dolomite. Regardless of the stone from which it came, it offers a medium that is as elegant as it is resilient. It only stands to reason that such an abundant natural resource has been used throughout history, in various different cultures around the world. Marble has long been utilized to create cremation urns, which offer the same timeless beauty that can be seen in age-old art such as the Statue of David, and even in architecture, such as the Taj Mahal, or even the ruins in Greece.
Marble cremation urns are available in a variety of styles, ranging from beautifully turned vases, to exquisitely assembled funerary boxes. This section also offers cremation urns made from different stone materials, such as alabaster, granite or slate. There are even urns crafted from cultured marble, which is actually strong enough to act as both a cremation urn, as well as an urn vault, which can be placed directly into the earth for burial. All of the urns can be personalized, either with direct etching or engraving, or by adding an engraving plaque, for which there are also several style options.

"The marble statue I received is perfect; I had it placed on the front lawn - it is a little bigger - which is actually nice. Everyone has commented on this piece of art outside my house." Kirsten Holl
