Rusty Slate is a beautiful slate floor from China. Rusty Slate slate is a very fine-grained rock of mostly microscopic clay minerals with some microscopic quartz and calcite.
Slate can also contain some of the same minerals found in granite, making some slates iridescent and / or hard.
The change of shale by heat and pressure produces the pronounced separations (slaty split) that give slate its characteristics.
Like limestone and marble, the color comes from trace metals. The wild colors on most Chinese and Indian slates are the result of splitting the slate along natural layers, exposing the metals to the atmosphere and oxidizing (rusting).We supply high quality natural stone & ceramics at very competitive prices.
