SSQ’s Riverstone natural stone isn’t slate, but phyllite – an extremely rare metamorphic rock that’s prized for its strength and beauty. It’s harder and stronger than slate, and can be used to make gorgeous, long-lasting roofing, flooring, cladding and more.

Mica flakes and the tiny crystals on its surface give Riverstone natural stone an unmistakable silky appearance, known in the industry as a phyllitic sheen, while its attractive grey-green colour instantly distinguishes it from other products on the market.

The aesthetics and outstanding life-long performance of SSQ's world-class phyllite have seen it specified in hundreds of prestigious buildings – from the Four Seasons hotel in New York and the Hilton in Helsinki, to the Grand Lisboa Casino in Macau and Berlin’s Topography of Terror Museum, as well as for luxury homes all over the world.
