The guide of natural stone in France - Focus on schist

In february, the SNROC guide make us discover a new natural stone : the schist.

Originally from Anjou, the Alpes, Central Massif, Midi-Pyrénées region and the Bretagne, the schist and slate from France have to be rediscover.
Thanks to their low thickness, their great resistance against frost and their waterproofness, they are mainly use on the roof of our houses.
More thick, they are use to build walls, low walls or for the floor.
Their color, anthracite grey to black make them really contemporary.
