Black Grain Marble Keepsake Urn
My husband had children from a previous marriage whom all wanted some of their fathers ashes. I wanted to give them something beautiful they could put where they wanted. These were perfect. The perfect size for a small amount of ashes, but not too small like the jewelry pieces. Beautiful marble. I got engraved plates with their fathers info. They were all very touched to receive their fathers ashes in this way. Everyone was very pleased, and these are inexpensive enough that you can purchase multiple for extended family. Very pleased and will purchase again.
Very pretty but ..
The urn itself is a very nice black marble color but I did not notice in the item description that the top does not screw off and you must unscrew bottom, then balance the urn up side down to fill. Okay, I looked past that and decided to use it anyways. Let me add, my mother just recently passed and this urn was for my dad who passed several years ago, I didn’t think his urn that my family chose was appropriate for his style so I made this purchase when I had to buy my mother’s urn. That being said, I’ve had to transfer ashes before and this was waaaaay worse than any other urn I’ve had to fill. On top of that, the original keepsake urn I had, which was smaller in size than this purchased urn, was still HALF FULL by the time this urn was packed full! So now my dad is split into two different containers currently, horrified! The walls of this urn must be very thick because the remains of a smaller urn did not fit in this urn! Beautiful but difficult to deal with and smaller than it actually looks.
My son would have loved it, which is the reason I chose the black marble. I have it on a hutch with his picture and fresh flowers (every week). It is beautiful. There are no CONS for this Urn. I am so glad I found this web site. Thank You.
