Quality and Color Of Granite for a Monument or Mausoleum

Choose a Quality and Color of Granite for a Mausoleum, Memorial, Monument or Headstone

Click here to view pictures of different granite colors you can choose from for a mausoleum, memorial, monument or headstone. The quality of granite for a mausoleum or monument is also important. Different quarries yield different mineral compositions in the stones, accounting for variations in durability and color. The composition of Rome Monument genuine Rock of Ages granite is high in quartz and feldspar, making it more durable than many other varieties of granite. The quarries we use in the United States, Canada, and Africa are rigorously selected for this durability as well as the rich color of their stone. It is true that many other granites exist and can be used for a memorial; however these other granites do not meet the quality standards of Rome Monument and Rock of Ages. You can choose from monuments built from black colored granite, blue pearl colored granite, grey colored granite, mahogany colored granite, red colored granite, rose colored granite and white colored granite.
