Frequently Asked Questions

No, the size, shape, number, texture, color, etc., is determined by many factors that are out of our control. Each set of remains is unique to the individual.
No, but we recommend that you do. Solidified remains are not a product. They are a new form of remains. You can scatter the stones, keep them in a container, and share them just like “ashes.” That said, you can send a partial amount - a minimum of 1/4 cup. We do not offer discounts for partial amounts of remains.
No, we do not offer discounts for partial amounts of remains because we charge for the process, not the quantity. Our process is designed to solidify the full amount of remains.
From the time we receive the ashes, the solidification process takes 8 weeks. Depending on our volume of orders at a given time, we may have a wait time before we send a collection kit to retrieve your loved one’s remains for processing. Our priority is the safety of your loved one, and we will always prioritize this over speed.
We add a small amount of natural binder to the remains to help the stones solidify during our process.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average fish is 1-2 stones. The exact number of stones returned depends on the volume of remains provided. A good rule of thumb is that we will return a similar volume of solidified remains’ stones as the volume of ashes that we receive. In other words, 1 quart of ashes will return about 1 quart of stones.
