SLATE


Slate is a low grade metamorphic rock with a fine grain. Slate often has a gray color and may be split into parallel layers. The precursor rock is generally a shale or siltstone.

Slate is used as roofing, as the flat beds of billiard tables, and historically had many other uses since replaced (such as school blackboards).
