Granite is the main stone used in tombstones. Different countries, even different regions of the same country, have different preferences for the varieties and colors of stone used for tombstones. For example, the tombstones in Kanto area of Japan are mostly gray black and green granite, while those in Poland are mostly black.

Black series granite, as the material for tombstones, is the main material for European tombstones. The tone of stone used for tombstone monument is very important. Generally, tombstones are sold in sets. Therefore, it is required that the color of the raw materials used as tombstones should be uniform and the size of crystal particles should be consistent. It is better to cut the blanks of various matching stone products of a set of tombstones from the same block of raw materials. If it is impossible to select from the same block, the same color of the same pit in the same mine should be selected as far as possible.

The quality of the raw material itself has a great influence on the yield. The selected raw material for tombstone should be free from cracks, scars and colorless lines, with low water absorption, stable physical and chemical properties and uniform crystallization.

The effect of the block size of the raw materials on the processing of the tombstone is not as prominent as that of the processing plate. However, in order to ensure the uniform color and particle size of the same set of tombstone stones, the block size of the raw materials should be selected as the materials for tombstones.
