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.
