is slate formed?
Slate is known as a metamorphic rock
because its formation originates from an existing rock known as shale. That is, the
originating rock shale changes its mineral composition by heat and pressure, a process known as
crystallization. This new form of rock slate may consist of many
minerals such as, mica, chlorite, and quartz. Metamorphic rocks are known to
be a harder material than most other types of rocks, hence, giving slate a
characteristic known to be
more resistant to weathering and erosion. This is what makes slate such an
attractive product for applications that will endure harsh conditions.
