Material Info

What is Italian Slate?

Italian Slate is a softer material that offers some flexibility whereas Brazilian slate is much harder.  The surface is smooth, with no discernible grain, similar to that of a leather writing desk.  Slate is easily maintained and the black colour makes it perfect for this purpose.  The natural, riven finish is flat with a ‘wood grain’ appearance running the length of the slab.  Recommended where the hearth may see a lot of traffic as it does not show the scratches.
