Slate

Before Slate was Slate it was originally a Sedimentary Rock

 

All of the Slate deposits in Georgia are mica slates of sedimentary origin. The Rockmart slates and green slates are slightly fading, but the silver gray, high-potash slate of the Cartersville district is absolutely unfading.

Slate folds, which formed during the mountain-building events of the Paleozoic Era, are visible around Rockmart in the Valley and Ridge geologic province of northwest Georgia.

This texture produces. smooth and lustrous cleavage surfaces.

Large Chips are an aesthetically pleasing size that is perfect for flower beds and rockscapes while being heavy enough to stay in place during extreme weather

Medium Chips are slightly smaller than the large chips but are just as aesthetically pleasing and is also perfect for flower beds and rockscapes while being heavy enough to stay in place during extreme weather

Mini Chips compact nicely and lays flat for an easy, trip free surface that is perfect for patios and walking paths
