The Fascination: Natural Slate Stone

 

Natural slate stone – the fascination of a unique rock. Formed more than 400 million years ago in the Devonian period when primitive granite rock was eroded by the climatic influences. The clay sludge that was created hardened into argillaceous rock, which folded under the tremendous tectonic pressure of subsequent earth movements.

After underground mining the fissile slate reaches daylight in large blocks. Split by skilled craftsmen the slate tablets are formed - each having a unique surface.

Each model of our slate clocks is therefore exceptional designed by the structure of nature. The structure and fine striation as well as intercalations and lodes in the stone are evidence of the authenticity of a fascinating natural product.
