Slate

Slate is a metamorphic stone

 

created with compression by horizontal forces and minor heating of shale and mud stone.This process takes many thousands of years.


Slate scratches and marks relatively easily.  Slate "ages" with use, and needs to be oiled periodically if used for work surfaces or fire hearths.  This 'ageing' process gives older slate a warm and rich patina.
