You mean granite - as in the rock?

A carbide tipped bit will do. Go to Home Depot. Be careful though, it's brittle and it'll crack if you're too close to an edge or hit a defect that travels to the edge.

Can you epoxy or silicone a plate to the back?

keep it wet

carbite tile and stone drills need to be kept wet, I have never tryed to drill granite with my Bosch Buldog concrete drill. I drill concrete dry, but for deep holes I have to pull the bit out every inch to throw out the dust or a deep hole will clog up and lock the bit in the hole, the bosch drills about 3 times faster than a regular hammer drill.
Around here places that do granite counter tops will give you scrap and sink cut out pieces , something to practice on or mabe a sink cut out could be cut to the size you need.

if you want it like a headstone, go to gravestone shop talk with the guy, maybe you can do a little barter with him. oil changes , tune ups. also x2 keep it wet, 2 person job. one to pour and one to drill.
