An ocean of metallic shades created by the swirling tones of copper, blue, gray, brown and other earthen hues transcend the functional attributes of slate.
Slate is a foliated , fine-grained , homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from a sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through metamorphism.
The resulting foliation may not correspond to the original sedimentary layering. When slate is extracted in the quarry, slates will form smooth flat sheets of stone.
Slate is frequently grey in color especially when seen. Slate also occurs in a variety of colors even from a single locality.
