    I love slate and wanted to put it in my kitchen but was advised not to because of the layering and durability issues. Is this an actual slate or ceramic tile that looks like slate?

    Bonnie this is real slate. Surplused that they said not to use slate in the kitchen. I have it in many rooms and its great..A little rough texture but so far holds up great.. Thank you..
