Slate is incredibly unique in the way it is formed. It is a fine grained metamorphic rock, formed in different layers. Over a long period of time, the rock will change colour, which is how you get the variation. Whilst greys are the most common, other colour tones can include green, blue and purple. Slate takes millions of years to form, and cosists of quartz and mica, and has been a very popular building material for many centuries.
The English Lake District slate quarries actually date back to Henry VIII, with evidence of slate being used by Romans. It is one of the most durable materials, that is completely weather proof if treated properly, and like other natural stone, no two pieces of this truly stunning stone are the same.
