Why Choose Slate?
To achieve a natural looking habitat slate is an ideal material to use. The
lovely texture, grain and shapes are eye catching, however the subtle shades of
grey are neutral so will not clash with other colours. Many other types of
rocks and wood can appear ‘messy’ when put together. Natural slate not only
looks great but highlights and enhances the colours of the animals and plants
it is placed with.

Beware of the large amount of sellers who have recently tried to replicate our
products and those that use our wording to try and describe their inferior
pieces. Many months of design and testing in a retail setting has gone
into finalising the structures we use. We do not simply stick reclaimed pieces
of slate tile together using silicone. We only use aquatic safe materials that
are also compatible with EACH OTHER and so produce top quality ornaments that
are built to last!

We believe we can not be matched on the quality of our slate we source direct
from the quarry or the refined finish to all our ornaments. Don't settle for
anything less, we may often be copied but we are never equalled. You and your
pets environment deserve the best so choose the original FENNSTONES.
No machine cut edges on display. These appear much lighter in colour and look
Large pieces of slate used. Slate looks best when you can see the grain and
textures. Tiny pieces stuck together lose the stones’ charm.
No silicone or glue on display. We don’t use these substances as others do so
you won’t see messy joins. We rely on our skilled stone work along with
traditional and innovative new techniques to fit slate naturally together.
Clean slate. We hand pick top quality stone with no impurities such as iron
