Our Himalayan Rock Salt Cremation Urn is perfect for water burial. The organic salt composition will biodegrade within roughly four hours after the burial urn is placed into the sea, releasing and scattering your loved one's remains in an way that is eco-friendly, sustainable, and symbolically beautiful.

The urn itself is constructed by hand from natural rock salt crystals. Because this is a natural product, there will be minor variations in color, texture, and composition. These salt urns are designed specifically for water burial, having holes in the bottom which allow water to seep through so that the urn floats gracefully for a few moments after being placed into the sea and then slowly sinks to the ocean floor to dissolve. Includes biodegradable plastic bag for holding the remains.
