Granites are available in many colors from quarries around the world:
The top and sides of a monument can be finished in one of two ways:
The front and back of the memorial are almost always finished smooth. The smoothness is achieved by using a heavy flat disk of steel on the surface of the granite with grinding grit under it. After many revolutions of this heavy flat wheel, any ridges wear down to smoothness. To bring a high gloss to the smooth finish, this process continues with a polishing rouge under the heavy rotating disk. The combination of the high speed of the disk pressing down on the surface, along with the polishing agent, brings the granite to an everlasting gloss.
If quality granite is not selected, it can affect the appearance of the memorial over time. Sinai Memorials uses only the finest quality materials from the best granite quarries, along with superior craftsmanship. We also use the latest technologies in the industry to assure you of a lasting memorial to reflect the pride and caring of your family.
