India Red Granite is a magnificent crimson color that stands out from many of the stones in a cemetery. A traditional sign of wealth, power, and loyalty to family make our India Red Granite very popular in the Bay Area. Sourced to the port of Oakland direct from India, this granite hails from the foothills of the Himalayas.
When designing a memorial with this red material, some choose to add gold leaf embedded into the engraving. Painting or adding color to contrast is usually used on this granite color to make the inscription pop. The red of this stone is accompanied by grey and beige flecks giving an almost iridescent shine.
