Selecting the right color takes time. All of the colors of granite are mined and sourced from all over the world. Thus, each stone is ever so slightly different.

The sample photos are a very good representation of the granite we source daily, but in some cases, you may see some variation in the color across the stone especially the Rainbow or Bahama Blue Granite. Where some patterns are more uniform like the Blue Pearl or Gray Granite.

For natural boulders, each boulder is uniquely different and will be one complete stone. Whereas granite is mined and cut from larger blocks to get your desired shape. 

All colors considered, it’s best to reach out and speak with one of our expert memorial designers for more details of weekly stock and how long custom pieces will take to get here.
