Our Earth Tone Slate Switch Plates range of switch plates and outlet covers are made from 100-year-old roofing slate that we reclaim from all over the state of Vermont. In its original form, this semi weathering gray-green slate does not have the warm earthy tones that the light switch cover pictured has. The aging process of being exposed to over a century of the Vermont elements breaks down the slate stone and the internal minerals appear giving this natural stone switch plate its wonderful tone. Our slate wall plates can accent green and brown granites as well as soapstone or just about anything in warm, natural palettes. This really is the switch plate you have been looking for if you are after a real natural stone decorative switch plate. Come see more at www.slatewallplates.
