Some other rocks that occur in thin beds are improperly called slate because they can be used for roofing and similar purposes. True slates generally split not along the bedding plane but along planes of cleavage that may intersect the bedding plane at high angles. Slates may be black, blue, purple, red, green, or gray. Slate may be marketed either as dimension slate, used mainly for electrical panels, laboratory tabletops, roofing, and flooring, or as crushed slate, used on composition roofing, in aggregates, and as a filler

When a clay is metamorphosed by both heat and pressure the clay minerals become unstable and recrystallise to form stronger, but still platy minerals such as mica These crystals grow at right angles to the direction of the pressure, and therefore allow the rock to split easily in this direction The resultant slate is harder than the original clay and can thus be split into thin yet strong pieces
