When viewed from a distance, the urn I received looks like water-stained cardboard with cracks. Since I intend to use it for columbarium burial, it is acceptable. However, I would have returned it if my intention was home use.
I wasn't sure about this urn at first because the picture shows what look to be cracks. Upon exam, these are natural fissures in the marble and add a depth of character to this already beautiful urn. This urn is really heavy-it's made from one big piece of marble! They call it teakwood marble and it really seems to have the look of wood grain to it. The subtle shading goes perfect in our earth tone living room.
The urn is beautiful, very heavy, well made. Please keep in mind that the colors will vary, mine does not have the yellow shade in the picture, it's beige, but the marble is gorgeous, so I don't mind at all. Also it doesn't come with a filling kit, which was a bit disappointing, but it wasn't included in the description. Just wanted to make sure other buyers understand that. Over all an excellent purchase.
