These are but a small sampling of the many different granites used here in Michigan. Although we have access to all the granite colors the monument industry offers, the colors below are the ones Patten Monument keeps, in various sizes and styles, in our inventory. Granites ranging from gray, to green, to blue, even multi colored with a swirling effect, can be found in most cemeteries. Some granites are quarried here in the USA while others are imported from overseas. All of these are monument grade quality and fully guaranteed. St. Albans Pink is primarily used as a backing for bronze memorials because it complements the color of bronze, however, it does not contrast well for sandblast engraving.
