What are Cremation

Cremation stones, or Solidified Remains as Parting Stone calls them, are solidified remains made from cremation ashes. The cremated remains of a typical adult yield a collection of 40 to 60 stones. These stones can be held in your hand or beautifully displayed.


Cremation stones are much easier to travel with than cremation ashes, and they are easier to divide among family members and close friends.
