The granite commonly used in modern stele is black, gray and white, which have the same surface color, and have smooth surface, colorless lines and scars. Of course, some marble will also be used as tombstone material, such as white marble. The shape and size of each set of tombstones are different, so we can not use the mechanical equipment of assembly line completely. We can only use different instruments according to the different shapes of various accessories of tombstones. Therefore, the selection of tombstone is particularly important!

The material of a set of tombstones should be as similar as possible, so as to ensure the same hardness, and there is no need to frequently debug the machine. This is one of them. After hundreds of years of development, Fujian tombstone industry has gradually selected several commonly used materials: sesame black granite, Shanxi black granite, Indian red, absolute black, bahama blue, blue pearl, etc. These stones have stable appearance, similar density and pure color, which are very suitable for memorial monument.

Of course, since stone is a non-renewable resource, new stone or other better materials may replace stone as the main material for tombstones over time.
