What is slate?
Slate is a fine-grained, layered rock formed from sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash. It is formed by heat and pressure being applied to shale-like rock.
NOTE: Both slate chips and slate path occasionally have white quartz chips in the mix that come from the quarry.
Looking for a Gray color? These large but thin pieces of slate lay flat and produce a nice texture for your landscape. Chips range in size from approximately 1″ to 3″ in diameter.
Slate Path is the smaller size of our Slate Chips. Sizes range from 1/4″ to 1/2″. Slate Path packs down very well and therefore is excellent for pathways and walkways.
