Slate and QuartziteSlate and Quartzite are layered stones and both belong to the group of sedimentary stone, it is only the composition of the stone that varies. Slate is created in layers of clay sediment that has been under pressure for a long time and then turned into stone, with an intermediate step called shale (also called clay brick). The advantage of the stone is that it is easy produce in relatively thin slices. The layers are not permeable and generally are easy to reach. The cleft surface of slate adds a distinctive, rustic look.
Quartzite is formed in much the same way, except that the sediment was mostly sand. It is a layered stone that often occurs in many bright, lighter colors. Though it is usually lighter in color than slate it is a material that breathes its own atmosphere, rustic by the fractured surface but with a more sunny appearance.
Below is a list of the most common Slates and Quartzites.
