Custom engraved stones

Are you looking for a truly unique housewarming present, trophy, or pet memorial? Consider custom engraved stones, or etched stones. These etched stones are unique because they bear a message that is literally set in stone. As we shall see, etched stones can keep their message for many millennia. They are a better marker of the passage of our transient souls than any other marker out there.

Such etched stones have been popular even before human civilization rose. An etched stone was found that dates back 100,000 years, consisting of 23 lines. Petroglyphs, a type of etched stones popular in ancient Australia, are as old as 27,000 years. Think of how long your message can last.

Such etched stones can serve a variety of purposes. Some stones are purely decorative in nature, such as garden stones or welcome stones. Other stones serve as doorstops or paperweights. No matter what their use is, stones with custom engraving are a sincere sign of communication.

The next time you want to give a unique gift, consider etched stones. These stones last for many generations, and are a great novelty. Just be careful what you write on them, for it will last many millennia.
