Forna Slate (Pizarras Forna)
Forna slate (Pizarras Forna) is recognised as the best premium Spanish slate, second in quality only to Welsh slate.
Almost totally pyrite free, there is simply no better slate on the market at this price.
Due to its quality and virtually identical characteristics to Welsh Blue Slates, this slate is approved for use in the Welsh and Peak District National Park.
Specified by architects on new build and extensions. Forna slate is also a cheaper alternative to using reclaimed welsh slates - and without the risk or need of sorting reclaimed slates.
Forna Slate is mined in the La Cabrera region of North West Spain (just outside Leon).
