Slate is an ancient rock form that can be found in some of the oldest mountain regions of the world. For centuries slate has been mined from these mountains and used as a building material. There are various types of slate flooring generally available, but the two styles known as ‘riven’ and ‘honed’ maybe considered the most common for flooring. Riven tiles are hand split along the grain of the slate thus exposing a naturally textured finish. Honed slate has a much smoother appearance and finish.
