Granite Cemetery Monuments
Granite is a popular choice for headstones, monuments and also cemetery markers. At Tegeler, we use only granite as it is the strongest and most durable to create long-lasting memorials. Granite is a crystallized rock that is mainly composed of quartz, mica, feldspar and other natural materials.
Found in various rock formations worldwide, granite memorials are most preferred for the following reasons:
- A cost effective monument choice
- Ability to withstand significant weight
- Will bear a lustrous polished finish
- Can resist abrasion & decay for many years
- Comes in a wide variety of colors
A frequently asked question that we receive is: “where do we get the material for our granite headstones and markers?” At Tegeler, we obtain our granite from quarries as close as Georgia and as far away as South Africa or China. Of course, this truly depends on the type of granite monument you would like.
