I am really enjoying the info about cemetery symbols and monuments etc. Does anyone have information as to the life-expectancy of the various materials or where this could be found. Some of the old marble stones are still in excellent shape with very readable print, and some 10-year old stones are losing their images. I know there is a real variance in costs for
the different materials, but what about the skills of the engraver or the
elements which would destroy the materials.
