Diamond etching is the process of creating a picture with thousands of impact marks from a diamond-tipped chisel. This old-world technique creates a long-lasting picture that is actually engraved into stone.

Memorializing the life of a loved one is a difficult process. Finding a professional can make this process a lot easier. Create a monument that will preserve the story of a lifetime for generations to come by choosing a professional monument builder from North America's largest and most respected Monument association–the MBNA.

Stone is polished by hours of work by a skilled craftsman. There is no "coating" that is applied. The beautiful, nearly permanent shine on memorials is created by a series of diamond impregnated pads, water, and a skilled craftsman. If the polishing process is done incorrectly, the stone can overheat causing the stone surface to prematurely crumble.
