SLATE: A fine: grained, foliated, metamorphic rock which splits along its parallel cleavage plains. The vast range of colours is derived from the minerals contained in the shale from which it was formed
LIMESTONE: Calcareous rock in the widest sense. In Anglo-Saxon nomenclature this term is often used to distinguish a non-crystalline marble, (namely a calcareous stone = limestone) from a crystalline metamorphic stone = marble).
Quartzite collection from Union Tiles: A metamorphic stone, 80% of which is made up of quartz which is often easy to split into slabs or sheets.
Sandstone: Calcitic sedimentary stone, made up primarily from fragments of detritus and mineral granules, having dimensions between 1/6mm and 2mm. There are a great number of types of Sandstone depending on the genesis, structure and composition: eolianite, arkose (feldspathic -quartz sandstones) and lithic arenites (which may also be calcareous containing calcite or aragonite), etc.

Union Tiles Marble Collection – Stone is the natural construction material par excellence: man has dealt with it from his origins, producing weapons, tools, trinkets, but also building shelters and fences for his protection. The millenary ties between stone and the history of mankind originated with an epochmarking passage, when stones lost their “natural shapelessness” and were “configured”, to follow the aspirations of a construction that was destined to become Architecture, Art, Symbolism and a Wonder for man. Throughout history, in fact, marble has been used in many applications, but one of its highest and most sublime contributions has been within the ambit of architecture, increasing numbers of architects and designers have a predilection for stone because of to the many aesthetic renderings it can take on: modern finishing, which is possible with the use of machinery that employs advanced technologies, allows man to satisfy even the most creative requirements.
