The Lucia Cremation Urn is made from solid Titanium with 24K Gold Plated Grecian Caps. Titanium has rapidly become a highly sought after metal in the prestige market. It is used in a variety of high-end luxury and utilitarian products, and is identified as representing quality and endurance, as well as a kind of sleek, classic beauty. Titanium has the strength of steel, but at half of its eight. A titanium urn that is 500 years old would have the same appearance as one that is just a week old. The Lucia Cremation Urn will not corrode, discolor, or degrade regardless of environmental conditions, while maintaining a rich patina finish.
