Slate is a form of natural stone, meaning it is derived completely of natural processes, unlike ceramic, which combines chemical processes to complete the tiles. Slate is a combination of clay and silt that is bonded together through extremely high temperatures and pressure.
When slate is quarried, it is cut off into large slabs or sheets. Afterwards, it is brought to a mill where it is cut into tiles, inspected for faults, and in some cases, polished and finished.
