The Contrast of light and Dark


“To see in color is a delight for the eye, but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.”
 Highly polished Supreme Black Granite and flawless Vicount White Granite are two of our
 most popular materials and finishes. Both equally beautiful and both completely
 different in every aspect, ambience and atmosphere. 


Chiaroscuro: The contrast between light and dark.



“Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites which pervade our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash.” 

Light has a innocence inside that we can’t always see whereas the darkness is rarely ever naive. Both are equally related to spirituality and indeed the passing of a loved one.
 Vicount White Granite presents cleanliness and purity. It symbolises awakening, openness, growth and creativity. It amplifies everything in its way. White is a color of protection and encouragement, offering a sense of peace and calm, comfort and hope, helping alleviate emotional upsets. It creates a sense of order and efficiency, a great help if you need to come to terms with grief

in your life. White offers an inner cleansing and purifying of your thoughts, emotions and, ultimately, your spirit, refreshing and strengthening. 

Supreme Black Granite is definitive and powerful. It is highly reflective and represents prestige putting forward the feeling of conservatism and conventionally that is also restricting and contained. Striking and elegant black marble can evoke strong emotions and memories and can be quite overpowering for some to handle. Never cynical and very much authoritative in nature it stands out when used by the master craftsmen in stone at Fingal Memorials.
