Slate is a very dense fine-grained sedimentary stone with similar properties to limestone and forms from shale-type rock composed of clay and volcanic ash. The result is a foliated, layered stone with a natural appearance that is frequently light and dark grey in colour with variations of purple, green, cyan and brown. Due to it's low tendency to absorb water, slate is easy to maintain with or without the application of a sealer making it a good choice for all high use areas both indoor or outdoor.
