The Grecian Merlot cultured marble cremation urn is crafted in the shape of a classic style vase. The urn cavity is accessible from a bottom-opening stopper. Since each urn is unique, please allow for slight variations in the pattern, texture and intensity of the cultured marble.
A Strong and Durable Cremation Urn
Cultured marble is a term used to describe a very strong material that simulates the appearance of genuine stone or marble. Cultured marble cremation urns are made combining modern plastics with natural materials, such as crushed stone. The resulting appearance is a rich and smooth marbleized texture, with a look and feel that simulates real, natural stone.
Perfect for Burial
Because of the strength of cultured marble, most cemeteries will allow this urn to be buried in an earth grave without the use of an urn vault. However, you should still check specific cemetery regulations to be sure. Once buried, cultured marble can withstand most ground-surface pressures of a cemetery (i.e., tombstones or grave-digging machinery). Though this cultured marble urn functions as urn vault for burial, it can also be either kept at home or entombed in a cemetery columbarium niche.
