Slate is extremely gorgeous and very versatile. Gone are the days when it was just used for tiling a roof or floor. These days we have so many more types and finishes of slate; it is up there with the more popular stone.
Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism. It is the finest grained foliated metamorphic rock.
We are planning to add a lot more slate planters to our catalogue.
