Nowadays, marble and granite are the preferred materials for tombstone, which can be divided into artificial and natural ones. Natural marble is a metamorphic rock formed by high temperature and high pressure in the crust. As marble generally contains impurities, easy to weathering and dissolution, and make the surface quickly lose luster.

Natural granite is igneous rock, also known as acid crystalline plutonic rock, is the most widely distributed rock in igneous rock, belongs to hard stone. The quality of granite is determined by mineral composition and structure. Good quality granite, not easy to weathering and deterioration, appearance color can be maintained for more than 100 years, so it is mostly used for wall foundation and external wall facing. Due to its high hardness and wear resistance, granite is suitable for tombstone design and also commonly used in high-grade building decoration projects.

Compared with marble, granite is more hard and acid resistant. Because of the simple mineral composition, easy processing, most of the fine texture, good mirror effect and bright surface, it is best to select the high-grade natural stone which is not easy to corrode.

At present, by comparing the varieties and prices of domestic and foreign stones in the market, we can see that the price of imported stone materials is almost 3-5 times of that of domestic similar varieties. Therefore, we can choose high quality and low price domestic stone. Or you can also choose stone varieties according to the parts used, not necessarily the more expensive the better. For example, the decorative surface can use bright and clean marble with outstanding effect. The ground of the cemetery can be made of granite with good wear resistance and high strength.
