Which Kind Of Urns Last The Longest?

The longevity of an urn depends largely on the material from which it's made and the conditions to which it's exposed. If you're looking for urns that last the longest, especially when thinking about interment or placing them outdoors, here are materials that tend to be durable:

1. Metal (Aluminum, Brass, Bronze & Stainless Steel) : These type of urns are exceptionally durable and resistant to corrosion. Metal urns can last for many centuries and are often chosen for outdoor placements or mausoleums.

2. Marble and Granite: These are natural stones that are very durable. Marble and granite urns can be used both indoors and outdoors. However, marble is slightly porous, so it might wear down a bit faster than granite when exposed to harsh outdoor conditions.

3. Ceramic: While ceramic urns are fragile when exposed to direct impact, they can last a long time if placed in a location where they're not likely to be knocked over or dropped. Ceramic urns sealed with a glaze can resist moisture for many years.

4. Hardwood: Urns made from hardwoods like oak, cherry, or mahogany can last a long time, especially if they are kept indoors and away from moisture. While wood is organic and will eventually degrade, a well-made and well-cared-for wooden urn can last for generations.

It's important to consider the conditions the urn will be exposed to. For example:

- Indoor vs. Outdoor: Urns kept indoors, away from direct sunlight and moisture, will generally last longer than those kept outside.
- Burial: If you're burying the urn, consider using a burial vault to protect it from moisture and the weight of the earth.
- Environmental Factors: Consider factors like humidity, temperature fluctuations, and exposure to salt (if near the ocean), as these can affect the longevity of some materials.

Regardless of the material you choose, select an urn that feels right for you, both in terms of aesthetics and the desired longevity. If an urn will be placed outdoors or in a potentially harsh environment, consider consulting with the urn retailer or manufacturer about the best choices for durability.
