Slate is a metamorphic rock which develops under conditions of low pressure and temperature.

Slate belongs to the family of shales and is distinguished by the quality of its very fine grain.

Slate is very porous but resistant and its colour can vary from white to black, passing through all sorts of grey, dark reds and greens and can present various shades of each.

Slate is presented in various finishes: smoothed, brushed, aged, sanded, bush hammered and cleaved.

It is mainly used for interiors, but is also suitable for the exterior if the stone is dense enough. Its properties also make it possible to use it as a roofing material.
