Distinctive Granite & Marble, Facts about Slate & Soapstone    

A great combination of earth tone colors and the finish makes this stone one of a kind. The vibrant colors and unique textures make slates appropriate for interior as well as exterior applications. Because it is formed in layers, it can easily be split to expose beautifully textured surfaces.

The usual colors of slates are earthy (various shades and mixes of browns, beiges, yellows), black, dark-grays, and greenish-gray but shades of pinks, purples and copper are also found. They usually exhibit a lot of variation in color among the pieces quarried from the same site. Slates, depending on their individual hardness, are used for flooring, cladding and landscaping.

Soapstone is highly heat resistant, and has frequently been used in fireplace surrounds.
