Brandy Crag, Broughton Moor, Bursting Stone, Elterwater Kirby and Burlington Silver (also part of our Burlington Stone Collection) are a technically superior slates. The collection's testing data and empirical record make it superior to any other honed slate we've ever seen. The Burlington brand of slate has been used at Buckingham palace, the public Library at Princeton and in the Library at Yale University to name just a few of the hundreds of notable projects Burlington has supplied.

Geology of Slate

A foliated metamorphic rock that is formed through the metamorphism of shale. It is a low-grade metamorphic rock that splits into thin pieces.

General Information

All slates have a moderate absorption rating and will stain when exposed to oil and highly-pigmented liquids. All slates have a low abrasion resistance rating and are likely to scratch.

Care + Maintenance Tips

  • Always seal slate prior to grouting or use.
  • To reduce the appearance of staining, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
  • Use walk-off mats at entrances and expect the material to patina rapidly.
