 Extra small land occupation, fashionable and environmentally-friendly

Since the "life crystal" service was firstly provided in Shanghai in 2016, 150 thousand families in Shanghai have been served. Sacrificing with the life crystal is understood and accepted by the citizens gradually. The "life crystal" is small, pretty and long-lasting. Many disadvantages of the bulk cinder after cremation are eliminated. The volume of the cinder could be reduced by 85%-90%. The space for the cinder is greatly reduced. Multiple methods of burial are possible.

According to the latest version of National Standard for Occupational Skills of Cemetery Keepers (Exposure Draft), the cemetery is clearly defined as a place for burying bodies, remains, cinder and life crystals. As a kind of micro-storage, the "life crystals" could be placed at home or carried along. The cemeteries are still one of the places for storing the "life crystals", which has obvious effect of land-saving. In the "Crystal Garden" of Shanghai Fu Shou Yuan completed in Tomb-sweeping Day period this year, each crystal takes only 0.005 square meter by average. It is one of the most land-saving burial methods in China, even in the world.

In addition, the"Crystal Garden" of Shanghai Fu Shou Yuan changed people's conventional impression of land-saving burial. It features beautiful landscape, excellent quality and fashionable design, which embodies the respect to life. Especially the interior decoration materials in the underground cemetery, the latest environmentally-friendly rock beam (sintering compact stone) and 24k gold complex coating are used in the"Crystal Garden". It is also a kind of environmentally-friendly decoration material widely used in first-line stores. It is the first time that it is used in land-saving burial products.

 Technology enabling, public welfare first

 There are large electronic screens in the underground cemetery and over-ground square in the"Crystal Garden", which will be connected to a special cellphone application. The internet technology is applied to the sacrifice. On one hand, the family members of the deceased could upload the pictures, audio and video of the deceased to the application when they are sacrificing and renovating the tomb; on the other hand, the application has the functions of reserved sacrifice and remote sacrifice. The family members could sacrifice and renovate the tomb through the application, which eases the traffic jam during Qingming Festival and Winter Solstice Festival.

On the inauguration ceremony of the"Crystal Garden", the "Crystal Love" public welfare plan was announced by Shanghai Fu Shou Yuan Public Welfare Foundation and Shanghai Anshan Culture Development Co., Ltd. When a specific person who made outstanding contributions to the urban construction and development passed away, the Foundation and Shanghai Anshan Culture will manufacture, store the crystal for free and provide cloud memorial service. The ecological land-saving burial is advocated. Li Jingheng, Chief Brand Officer of Fu Shou Yuan International Group, said that Fu Shou Yuan International Group would insist on taking the enterprise responsibility, industrial responsibility and historical responsibility, endeavor to upgrade the public welfare capability and construct the "Crystal Garden" into a new public welfare base that combines the new innovation, land-saving burial and technological sacrifice together.

 Chair of memorial to salute the pioneer

Prof. Qiao Kuanyuan from University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, who passed away in 2019, was one of the first batch of experts in China Funeral Industry Expert Committee. He made tremendous contribution to the theoretical research of land-saving burial. In the Study on the Prospect and Countermeasure of the Application of Life Crystal written by Prof. Qiao Kuanyuan in 2015, the major burial method and the existing issues of the current cinder placement was analyzed from the aspect of the technological features of life crystal. The application prospect of life crystal is viewed. Corresponding countermeasures for accepting this new burial method by the citizens are put forward as well.

Therefore, a "Memorial Chair" for Prof. Qiao Kuanyuan was built on the square in the "Crystal Garden". The citizens could read about the introduction on the life, works and videos of Prof. Qiao by scanning the code after sacrificing and resting in order to commemorate the groundbreaking contribution of the pioneer. Chen Jie, General Manager of Shanghai Anshan Culture Development Co., Ltd., said that the last wish of Prof. Qiao Kuanyuan was to be buried as life crystal with his wife. He also proposed that we could not reduce the amount of cinder blindly. There shall be the sense of beauty. The history shall be inherited. The completion of the "Crystal Garden" of Shanghai Fu Shou Yuan comforts to the vision and expectation of Prof. Qiao.
