If there are no cemetery regulations regarding color, you should select granite color based on what color appeals to you and will look best with your design, carving, etching, or finishing style. Remember, if your memorial will include an etched design it is necessary to choose a black granite. We stock Absolute Black. Dark Impala Black (also sometimes known as Flash Black) and Zimbabwe Black granites can be ordered as well and provide the maximum available contrast and granite quality to insure a good quality, durable etching. We keep the following granite colors in stock and can order many additional colors.
