Slate has been used as an art medium and building material since antiquity due to its low water absorbency and natural beauty. A unique printing technology now allows old-world masterpieces and modern classics alike to be reproduced with fidelity and clarity on the surface on this ancient rock. Most of our slate tiles are meant for table top display and come with two wooden "feet" to enable them to stand. Various sizes. No two tiles are exactly alike due to the nature of the natural slate.
