A cemetery gravestone is an important part of memorializing a loved one. In some cases, the gravestone may be partially carved and referred to as an “undressed” stone. This term refers to a stone marker that has not had its surface completely smoothed and refined, leaving it with a rougher look. It is thought that this kind of carving represents the transition between life and death. It is a common misconception that the buyer ran out of money, which is why it looks unfinished.
