Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism. In other words it’s stone which the billiard industry uses exclusively for creating the playfield of a pool or billiards table. Billiard table manufacturers have been using slate for hundreds of years. Nowadays, billiard table slate manufacturers use state of the art cnc machines to produce some of the flattest surfaces known to man. A good quality slate can be machined flat to an astonishing 1/1000 of an inch. Thus allowing a player to achieve higher levels of consistent accuracy and ultimately improving your game.
