Semi-Weathering Gray-Green: Exceedingly strong and tough; also lowest in price of any slate. Grayish-Green
in color when quarried. Some slate (10-25%) gradually change to soft tones
of Buffs and Tans after exposure to the weather, adding variety and interest
to the roof, but in no way affecting its durability. This slate blends well
with any type of stone or frame structure and is also used as the basic percentage,
usually 50%, in roofs where several colors are mixed.
