This Pangea era slate is a very beautiful and unique slate rock from 75 feet below ground . The shape is very unique , has natural swirls and lines of different colors has natural orangish rust.This masterpiece from Mother Nature would look great on a fire mantle , shelf , table , kitchen , bed room , centerpiece for foyer , at camp and so on . This would also look wonderful in your garden , next to flowers , next to a tree that has been mulched .
Slate is 400-600 million years old .This piece took me hours to find ( it has to radiate a strong connection or I don't pick it ) was hand picked and spoke to me "sang a song "the moment I found it . The connection it radiated was powerful and surely is a gift from the heavens and Mother Nature. It is very ancient and will be around another 400 million years . Talk about made to last and a family heir loom!

info about slate:
How was it formed?
Sediments containing clay and silt, laid down in horizontal beds, on the floor of an ancient river or sea formed Shale over a couple hundred million years. Tectonic pressures folded these beds into mountains.
What is Slate composed of?
Shearing forces caused the Shale to mix with Calcite, Mica, Quartz, Pyrite, Volcanic Ash, and other minerals under enormous heat and pressure. The result was recrystallization into Slate deposits that can be as thick as half a mile.
What gives Slate it's different colors?
The presence and concentration of trace elements such as Graphite and metallic oxides such as Iron and Titanium determine the color of the Slate.
Is North American and European Slate the same?
It is theorized that all of the Earth's land masses were once joined together as a single continent known as "Pangaea" which, over 300 million years, split apart into the continents we now know. When one considers that the Slate deposits that run up the east coast of North America are virtually identical to those found in Wales it seems very possible.
How old is Slate?
Slate is mind bogglingly ancient! 450-600 million years old. Slate is so ancient it pre-dates the existence of humans, dinosaurs, insects, and even complex plants.
