Not all granites are created equal. Some are porous, and some are more subject to cracking than others. Helbig Memorials can source granite or marble from anywhere in the world, however we will advise strongly against the use of it if we have experienced issues in the past when used in the same application to protect our customers from issues in the future. This is in contrast with some firms who are less experienced and or don't wish to miss out on a sale.
As Granite and Marble are natural products they may vary in both colour and texture from what is shown below. We firmly believe the quality of Australian stone is far better than most of the imported Chinese and Indian granites.
