Brazilian Slate Tiles.

There are many different types of slate available on the market today.  English & Welsh slate is so far beyond most peoples budgets that it is no longer a viable option for anybody but the extremely wealthy.  Most slate now comes from Brazil, India & China.  The quality of Brazilian slate is superior to Chinese & Indian slate.

Brazilian slate is much more dense than Chinese & Indian material, so when it is split the result is a flat, even surface and a richer colour.  If you are thinking about slate tiles although the Chinese & Indian varieties are cheaper, it may well be worth paying that little bit extra for Brazilian slate.
