Slate is a fine-grained, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash.
Slate has lines of breakability that make it possible to split the stone.
When expertly cut with a specialized tool, slate forms smooth, flat, stackable sheets.
Natural slate is incredibly durable and slate slabs can last several hundred years with little or no maintenance. For centuries slate has been used as a building material and roof tile. Its low water absorption makes slate very resistant to frost damage and breakage due to freezing.
