Here at Artisan Memorials, we’re passionate about making the perfect headstones for families across the country, which is why we’re very particular about the different types of stone that we choose to work with. We always use high-quality, responsibly sourced British or European stone, ensuring that the end result is always something that has a premium look and feel.
Here are the different types of stone that we commonly work with:
When it comes to choosing the best type of stone for a particular memorial, it really comes down to preference. We make sure that all of the stones that we work with are able to withstand even the most extreme of British climates for long periods of time, so you can be sure that longevity isn’t an issue.
So, when choosing the stone that you would like for your memorial, go for something that you think will help achieve the aesthetic that you are looking for. Slate is always a popular choice, this enduring stone is perfect if you prefer darker grey, blues, greens and purples. If you want something warmer then, then Irish Blue, Yorkshire sandstone or Purbeck Stone offer a natural mid-toned alternative. Nabresina limestone is a perfect choice if you want a paler stone, this interesting and robust stone from the Trieste region of Italy is perfect for the UK climate and is often speckled with tiny shells and fossils.
