Although commonly referred to as “black slate” the colour is more of a mid to dark grey when dry and unfinished. ONce the slate has been oiled or sealed, the colour then goes to a dark grey/black. However, as slate is a natural product, there is never a clean consistent look to the surface. Every piece has a different look due to the natural riven surface.
What would you use a whole slate slab for?
Our whole slabs are sawn cut and ready to be finished or further cut for your job.
They are often commonly used for window cills, hearths, kitchen and bathroom (vanity) worktops, shelves, coping stones, window, and steps.
Also, the 20mm thickness slabs are often used as flooring tiles both indoor and outdoor and look great for patio and BBQ areas.
