Buckingham Gray Black Slate

A California Slate Company exclusive in the Western states: Buckingham’s blue-gray-black slate graces historical and modern buildings across the nation. The slate maintains a fine grained mica or “phyllitic” sheen which is inherent in its composition. This lustre is apparent on its lightly textured surface and will last for generations. It is unfading under all conditions.

Coming from their quarry in Virginia, Buckingham Slate has been producing slate since 1867. Buckingham Slate is recognized as the best in the industry and has the highest ratings possible. It is guaranteed to last for generations. Its durability, strength, and historical significance have made it an American classic for centuries.
