The definition of dissolution is to crumble extensively. Dissolution usually occurs as minerals are dissolved through time. Most minerals will be dissolved by water. The water will tend to break down the mineral into fine grains. The grains of the mineral become visible on the surface of gravestones. The surface will tend to have a "sugary" feeling. This will cause the corners of gravestones to become rounded. The lettering tends to become less distinct.
