Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous, metamorphic rock that is derived from an original shale-type rock or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism.
Since the geological process varies greatly, slates range quite a bit in hardness and porosity.

Recently, slates from India, South Africa, Brazil, and China have been gaining in popularity as a beautiful and practical alternative in residential and commercial designs.  The rustic quality of these slates fits well with current design trends.  The stone's earthy colors,varied patterning, interesting cleft textures and a hand-made appearance provide these stones with a distinctive charm in natural, comfortable spaces.
