Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanicash through low-grade regional metamorphism. The result is a foliated rock in which the foliation may not correspond to the original sedimentary layering. Slate is frequently grey in colour, however, slate occurs in a variety of colors even from a single locality.
Slate tiles are popular in front entrances, kitchens and outside areas due to their high traffic properties. Slate tiles are a very rustic natural tile with some riven areas creating a natural looking floor area with every tile totally different, that's the beauty of natural stone. The Slate tiles we offer on our website are available in variety of sizes and colours from black Slate, green quartzite to multi coloured Slate.
