Spanish Slate Quarries
Stand Number: 38
We are one of the world’s leading producers and specialist suppliers of slate products for use by the building and construction industry. We own and operate the Riverstone Phyllite quarry, located in La Represa, deep in Central Argentina, situated between the Pampas and the Andes mountain range
Riverstone is a phyllite stone formed within a Pre-Cambrian rock sequence around 640 million years old. It is the only source of this type of stone locally, and there are only a few sources of phyllite available worldwide.
Riverstone Phyllite has a natural medium grey finish that is free from any pigmentation, it is highly resistant to frost and has a very high flexural strength
Riverstone can be laid to a dramatic effect while drawing on the traditional use of paddle stones, larger flooring tiles or irregular patterns.
