    $250 per ton for flat grey slate.If bought by the pound,.25 per pound.
    I just paid .75 per pound for Mexican grey beach stone.Each stone was about a pound and only 3 inches across.:eek:
    Went fishing yesterday.Looked down in the creek and realized I was fishing over a gold mine.:D

    You can probably buy some rocks down on the corner......ain't even got to get out the car!

    Small and really light.

    Be careful though........could wind up breakin' rocks somewhere!
