What is Slate?

Slate is a fine-grain, metamorphic rock. It gets its unique appearance and character when layers of shale or mudstone shift far beneath the earth’s surface creating thin layers of rock, one on top of another. Slate is composed mainly of clay minerals or micas, silicate minerals that form in distinct layers. Slate often contains high levels of quartz that gives it a unique texture, as well as small amounts of other minerals like calcite, feldspar, pyrite and hematite found deep beneath the earth’s surface.

Because of its durability, slate is suitable for a variety of landscaping design projects including driveways, sidewalks and slate walkways, patios and terraces, pool and spa decks, stair treads and garden areas. Slate is a material that holds up well outdoors in all climate and weather conditions, even in cold Omaha winters. Because it absorbs minimal moisture, it stands up well to freezing rain, sleet and snow without cracking.
