The slate used for our products comes from a region in southwestern Vermont known as Slate Valley. While slate is quarried in other states such as Maine, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the green slate we use on our coasters is only found in this region. Black slate is not indigenous to this region and is imported from small quarries in Pennsylvania or imported from Spain and Portugal.
