Travertine is a form of limestone which is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often deposited at the mouth of hot springs or limestone caves. Travertine often has a concentric appearance making it both a beautiful and sturdy building material which is frequently used in Italy.
Sandstone is a classic sedimentary rock. It consists of quartz, mica, feldspar, clay and iron oxides. As it is naturally forming it comes in a range of colours from tan to yellow.
The memory stone sundials come with an antique brass sundial as standard, or you can choose a bright brass sundial for a small extra charge.
We send you your sundial with a sealant so that once you have placed your beloved pet’s ashes into the hollow central column you can simply apply the sealant and place the sundial on top securing the ashes safely inside.
Keeping ashes in the garden
We are a nation of gardeners and many people would love to place their pets to rest in the garden that they loved and enjoyed. The main downside to simply burying ashes in the garden is that if the house ever has to be sold you will have to find and dig the ashes up or leave them behind, this can be stressful for all involved. By keeping them inside a pet garden memorial in the garden not only do you get to put your beloved pet in the place that they loved, but if you do ever need to move home you can simply take them with you.
The other benefit of a memorial garden ornament is that it is completely discreet. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the keepsake it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
Due to the shape and size there is no need to secure the memory stone sundial to the ground, it is made of four sections the middle pedestal is hollowed to hold the urn.
If required we will supply a correctly sized urn free of charge. The sundial is fixed in place with a epoxy glue, these are shipped separately.
