A grey/green durable tight grained slate given texture and tone by its light cleft surface.
The help and advice we received from Richard at Pure Stone was very much appreciated, especially as we had two quite large schemes, a swimming pool and large kitchen. We have already recommended Pure Stone to friends who have seen the quality of the limestone that we used.
Slate is a metamorphic rock composed of clay or volcanic ash, which is hardened by the heat and pressure of tectonic plate movement making it very hard wearing and durable.
Our slate range comes from Brazil and is offered in cleft (a naturally split textured surface) and honed (a smooth matt finish).
Brazilian grey slate has a greenish tinge with similarities to Lakeland green slate, whilst Brazilian black slate has a darker appearance similar to Cumbrian blue black or Brathay slate.
