We've reserved a spot for your remains in our lab!

Our lab will be ready to begin the solidification process. We will mail a collection kit to retrieve your ashes in about 2 weeks. Our current time to solidify is 8 weeks from when we receive the remains. We will send you an estimated date of completion once they arrive at our lab followed by email updates as the decedent travels through the process.


Frequently Asked Questions

No, the solidification process varies from person-to-person in the number, shape, color, and size of "stones" produced.
The solidification process typically takes 10 weeks from when we receive the ashes at our lab. Depending on our backlog of orders, there is sometimes a processing time wait period before we send the collection kit to retrieve your cremated remains. We will tell you the current processing time before you checkout. Our priority is to successfully return beautiful "stones" to each customer and sometimes that takes extra time.
At this time we do not offer the solidification process for remains resulting from alkaline hydrolysis. We are working on perfecting this process, and we expect to offer this service soon. If you would like to be notified when we begin offering solidification for remains resulting from alkaline hydrolysis, please send us an email to support@partingstone.com and we’ll put you on the announcement list!
The entire solidification process looks like making ceramics in a laboratory. Once the remains arrive at our lab, we remove contaminants and refine the ash then create a clay-like material. From there, we form, solidify in a kiln, and polish the "stones" before returning them to you. You can see a fun animation of the whole process on our homepage here.
Yes. Solidified remains act like real stones so if you keep them outside or scatter, they will be there a long time.
