Bill Fry Construction - Wm. H. Fry Const. Co.
It is slate. The homeowner wanted it badly but the stone fabricator strongly discouraged it - there are more seams in it than you'd find with other stone and it chips. It feels wonderful - when you're in the kitchen, you can't get your hands off of it. Over time as predicted, it got chips. After about 10 years, the homeowner still loves it but would caution others against installing it.
