Granite Color Options

At Johnson Monument Company, we can offer a stunning array of granite choices from quarries around the globe. The list of colors below is just a sampling of the many color choices we offer. We carry over 50 different granite colors for you to choose from. If you would like a color that is not listed below, please contact us.

We also offer marble, however it is not recommended unless you are matching an existing piece. Marble is very soft and the weather will wear away at it. Lichen also attach themselves much more readily to marble than to granite, causing the stone to have black spots which are difficult to control. Granite is much more durable and easier to care for than marble.

All granite and marble memorials can be carved/sand blasted, however due to the lack of contrast, most colors are not suitable for hand-etchings. If you would like a hand-etched image, we recommend selecting one of the black granites.
