Del Carmen "Blue Back" SlateDel Carmen is specially and exclusively quarried from the Del Carmen quarry in North West Spain to offer customers a top of the range slate usually sought by demanding markets such as Germany or France.

Del Carmen roofing Blue-Black roofing slate has a distinctive riven texture; the deep blue-black colour is totally natural and will not fade, even in the strongest sunlight.

It is also non-porous and will not support the growth of mosses or lichens. It is also unaffected by insect attack. Whereas most slates sourced from Spanish quarries have a transverse grain, Del Carmen slates are notable for the rare characteristics of a longitudinal grain.
