Avalon Monuments and Memorials work with your family to create exquisite monuments and memorials that best reflect the essence of your loved one; be it in full, lawn memorial or plaque.
Avalon Monuments and Memorials use granite in our memorials. Granite in all of its colours and phaneritic textures (grains), has been used for thousands of years in monuments and memorials; and is regarded as a symbol of status, strength, and durability. Granite is composed predominantly of quartz and feldspar formed during the slow crystallisation of magma below the earth’s surface. Quartz and feldspar rate at 6 and 7 respectively on the Mohs scale of hardness, which means your monument, undisturbed and with very little maintenance, will remain looking lovely for many hundreds of years.
Avalon Monuments and Memorials also use the world’s best carrara marble; the eternal symbol of purity and immortality. Marble is composed of calcite. Calcite is formed when limestone is exposed to heat and pressure over millions of years. Marble is composed of calcite and has a rating of 3 on the Mohs scale of hardness, although marble is quite a hard stone in and of itself.
We at Avalon Monuments and Memorials understand that you wish to memorialise your family member’s memory in a way that best suits your culture and aesthetic preferences. We also understand that you are creating a wonderful genealogical record for your family and further a timeless piece of artwork to be appreciated for time immemorial, We also understand that whilst you wish to achieve all of these lovely outcomes, you also wish to remain receptive to working with family, timing, economics and process.
Avalon Monuments and Memorials’ professional approach to your memorial selection ensures your experience will be a pleasant and seamless one.
