Iran stone news agency, Slate flooring tile is a type of natural stone which is quarried from the side of mountains or taken from the earth.
A finely grained, homogeneous, metamorphic rock, it is named for the way the material forms in plains, like sheets resting one atop the other, compressed under great pressure to create a powerful bond. While slate is one of many natural stone flooring tiles available,
there are also numerous different types of slate, each with their own look and characteristics.
The foliation in slate is called slaty cleavage. The word “slate” is also used for certain types of object made from slate rock.Before the mid-19th century, the terms slate, shale and schist were not sharply distinguished
Slate can be made into roofing slates, a type of roof shingle, or more specifically a type of roof tile, which are installed by a slater. Slate has two lines of breakability – cleavage and grain – which make it possible to split the stone into thin sheets
