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. Foliation may not correspond to the original sedimentary layering, but instead is in planes perpendicular to the direction of metamorphic compression.
Slate cleaves creating fantastic textures and shadow variations. Honed slate is an excellent altenative, but easily scrathces.
Slate flooring goes best for fastidious areas, with fantastic colors and shades. Slate cleavage makes it a very good flooring option, especially in humid areas, as bathrooms. Tiles thickness may vary due to the cleavage, so supplementary adhesive may be needed for perfect flatness.
Slate is suitable for roofing, flooring, tiling, pool areas, pooltable countertops.
