Upright memorials (often called monuments) consist of two pieces of granite. The vertical piece is called a die. The die is generally 6″ or 8″ thick and polished on the front, back, and top. The second piece of granite is called a base of granite. The die is installed on the base. Upright memorials come in a variety of colors of granite and shapes.
