Crystalline Keepsake Urns

Our collection of Crystalline Keepsake Urns has been created to symbolise the high quality and beautiful quartz structure of different crystals and gems.

Made of ceramic material, each of these urns are glazed and created on a potter's wheel at a very high temperature of around 1280^C and then fired in an electric kiln for several hours. The molten glaze then forms into a liquid matrix and the kiln is then cooled to a temperature at which the crystals will start to grow.

Due to the chemical effects and depending on temperatures, each urn is one of a kind and impossible to replicate to be identical. Our Crystalline urns are named after the crystal or gem which most resembles the urn in colour and effect.

In this article, we will be looking at 8 Keepsake urns which have been crafted to hold a small amount of your loved one’s ashes. Whether you have decided to scatter, bury or share the majority of your loved one's ashes, keepsake urns allow you to keep a small piece of your beloved close.
