This beautiful slate board is made from real, natural North American black slate. It is not intense black, more like a dark grey. Black slate has beautiful, and subtle variegated black hues and bands of varying thickness throughout which can be seen when the slate catches the light.
This board is made by Brooklyn Slate, located in New York; they are hand finished to provide a rustic finished edge without compromising the look and feel of the slate; the color is grey-black.
These wonderful slate boards are sourced from family quarries in Castleton, Vermont and Hampton, New York.
Slate is impervious to fungus and mold; they are treated and sealed to be food safe. Crumbs, liquids and oils wipe off easily with a damp sponge or towel and you can even put them in the dishwasher (without the feet). Slate is one of the most durable stones readily available; they are at least 3/8" thick.
Each cheese board is packaged with a burlap bag with soapstone chalk and anti-slip padded feet. Size 12 x 7 inches.
