Tri State Stone


In some areas granite is used for gravestones and memorials. Granite is a hard stone and
requires skill to carve by hand. Modern methods of carving include using computer-
controlled rotary bits and sandblasting over a rubber stencil. Leaving the letters, numbers
and emblems exposed on the stone, the blaster can create virtually any kind of artwork or
epitaph.

Thank you to the entire TriState Team. We shopped around and the other granite
companies cannot compete. They made a template without trashing our kitchen and
within a week we had beautiful countertops. The service was friendly and professional. I
recommend them highly!

Tri State Stone
Granite is currently known only on Earth, where it forms a major part of continental
crust. Granite often occurs as relatively small, less than 100 km² stock masses (stocks)
and in batholiths that are often associated with orogenic mountain ranges. Small dikes of
granitic composition called aplites are often associated with the margins of granitic
intrusions. In some locations, very coarse-grained pegmatite masses occur with granite.
