Granite Colours

There are 10 main colours for memorial use in New Zealand. The granite is sourced from countries around the world such as India, South Africa, Norway, China, South America. New Zealand has one commercial natural granite called Coromandel and it is in very limited supply.

There is a large selection of granite colours more suited for buildings, bench tops and tiles rather than monumental work. If you have a particular colour you would like to use, we can provide some options for you.

The main colours are shown in the gallery below.
