Slate is very lightly metamorphosed and well-foliated. This appearance often makes it difficult to distinguish from its parent rock, shale. The two can be told apart by the difference in pitch when struck. Slate is ideal for lessons on metamorphic rocks and alteration, and is also a standby in indentification labs and exercises. This sample of green slate is approximately 1" in length, and comes in a labeled plastic bag.
