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.

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.

During a time and season that has come to be characterized by Black Friday deals and record breaking travel congestion, taking a little time to honor the people that shape our lives can help mend that part of us that is often neglected by the pressures of our workaday culture.
