An Ashstone is a beautiful concrete memorial stone with your pet’s ashes inside.
It is available as a kit where you get to have the experience of making your stone yourself,
or, you can send us your ashes and we will make your stone at our facility and ship it to you.

With either option, you create your personalized memorial design with our online canvas. We can even create a unique silhouette just for your beloved pet.

How It Works

Designing the Lucy Example Ashstone

Design and Order

You can start with a template, to create something stunning with minimal effort. Or, you can start from scratch, with many different images and fonts to choose from the possibilities are endless. Unlike other pet memorial stones, you can move the text and images around the surface to create truly unique designs that are guaranteed to impress. We add new images regularly, however if you want something specific you can add your own silhouette.

Receive the Ashstone Kit with Your Custom Mold

The heart of our operation is taking your unique design and transferring it to your custom mold. Along with the mold, you’ll receive everything you need to make an Ashstone. This includes: concrete pre-mix, water, stain, sealer and pigment. We do things quickly around here, your kit will be in the mail the next working day.

Mix in Your Pet’s Ashes. Pour and Set

We know concrete, it’s part of our business (RockMill Countertops), so with the kit comes a bag of high strength engineered pre-mix concrete. To the dry concrete mix you add your pet’s ashes, the pigment and the supplied water. You mix the concrete in a heavy duty plastic bag, it’s all very clean and tidy.  The Ashstone sets quickly to form a solid and durable memorial stone.

Color, Reveal and Seal

Now here is where the real magic happens. You’ve cast the stone, and it looks great, but now it’s time to make the design pop! First you apply a fast drying stain over the entire surface, then you sand off from the high areas to reveal your design in full contrast. Finally you apply sealer, which both enhances the depth of color and protects the surface for many years to come.
Oh, and by the way, all off the steps, including how to use the designer, are all explained completely in our Guide Video section.

Cherish!

Congratulations! You’ve made you own custom Ashstone! It’s more than just a pet memorial stone, it’s a wonderful new home. You can place your Ashstone inside or out, maybe in that favorite little spot they had? We’d much rather see that, rather than tucked away in a box or pet urn somewhere. Peace.

Four Styles

There are four color options to choose from. For each color option you receive a specific pigment to color the concrete mix, and a stain to contrast the design areas.
