Mr & Mrs Bates – Cumbria

Professional and very friendly bespoke service. Richard and Alexis will go that extra mile to ensure that everything runs smoothly. They have a fantastic range of granite and marble tiles/slabs at reasonable prices. My new bathroom looks absolutely fantastic. I have used Pure Stone on several occasions in the past and have never been disappointed. […]

Slate

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.
