Why Black Slate?

The black slate from this region is unique because of its rich dark color. It makes for a striking addition to landscape design, home design, and commercial architecture. This versatile rock has been popular in construction and design for centuries. It is most common to see it converted into an eye-catching pathway, walkway, or floor in a modern design. In Europe, slate is a popular roofing material because of its longevity and low water absorption.

Black slate is emerging as a preferred material for counter tops and floor tiles because it is economical, long lasting, and non-reactive. A hot pan placed on slate will do no damage to the counter.
