Generation Stone as a everlasting keepsake

Bestattung Himmelblau Wien Edelsteinbestattung Gemstone burial Edelstein

Gemstone funerals are a new variation on the theme of bidding farewell and creating a remembrance of a loved one. The method involves the extraction of certain specific elements from the ashes of the deceased. A “generation stone” in the form of a sapphire or ruby is created from the ashes in a special process that was developed in Austria.

This transformation into a generation stone enables the creation of a unique, eternal, tangible remembrance which you can even wear on your person. This memorial stone becomes an enduring heirloom to be passed down through the generations, telling a personal history. Each gemstone is just as unique as each person.

Generation stones start at two carats and are available for an affordable price. You can choose from different colours and sizes (up to 12 carats). An extraordinary lustre is achieved with delicate hand-polishing techniques. The scientifically approved manufacturing process ensures the stable development of the gemstone. The generation stone is completed and presented to the surviving relatives within 30 days.

  • Analysis and preparation of the ashes
