Stone cremation urns are favored for their classic beauty and strength. In the minds of many, the ability of stone to withstand centuries of wear and exposure to the elements symbolizes eternity. Although these qualities make stone urns an ideal choice when an urn is to be buried, their elegant appearance makes them equally appropriate as a decorative keepsake to be displayed in a place of honor. Because of its durability, stone is an excellent choice when the cremation urn will also serve as an outdoor memorial.

Available in assorted colors, designs, and shapes, stone urns may be crafted out of natural or man-made stone. They come in a wide range of prices, reflective of the material used and the amount of workmanship that goes into the design and manufacturing.

Natural Stone Urns

Several types of natural stone are used in the creation of stone cremation urns:

  • Granite Urns Granite as a construction material can be traced to the 26th century BC, when it was used in the Egyptian pyramids. Many of the Hindu temples of the 11th century were also made of this stone. The same durability and beauty that make granite an ideal material for monuments make it an excellent choice for stone urns.
  • Onyx Urns Onyx is a gemstone distinguished by its alternating light and dark bands, which may be found in a range of colors. Traditionally, onyx is said to banish grief, which may be significant in its use in urns.
  • Alabaster Urns Alabaster has been used since biblical times to create vases, statues, and religious decorations. Ancient alabaster was formed from calcite, while the alabaster that is used in stone urns today is formed almost exclusively from gypsum.
  • Marble Urns Marble urns are among the most beautiful to be found. This stone is formed from limestone through the process of metamorphosis. Polished marble is frequently used in buildings, furniture, and decorative art. Stone urns may be turned from a solid block of marble or fabricated from smaller pieces.

Caring for Stone Urns

Whether a stone urn is made from granite, onyx, marble, or alabaster, the method of care is essentially the same. Always avoid the use of abrasive or acidic cleaners, which may scratch or damage the surface of the urn. Instead, use a soft cloth and a mild cleanser; make sure to dry the stone completely afterward to avoid water stains.

Choosing the right size urn

Try finding an urn with our easy cremation urn finder.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
