Onyx Black
<< Back to Colors

Note: Due to the inherent variability in the color of natural slate, the actual color of your TruSlate® roof will vary from the photos depicted.
Truslate Onyx Black Slate

Expertly quarried in Canada at one of the world's most exclusive and renowned black slate quarries, Onyx Black is a clear, unfading* dark-black slate with a slight luster and natural grain. It adds dramatic contrast to virtually any home for a truly under-stated elegance.


When selecting this (or any) color, be sure to see samples under different lighting conditions. The reflective properties of Onyx Black slate tend to produce a lighter appearance in direct sunlight and darker shades in afternoon and evening light.

"If a slate on your TruSlate® roof gets damaged, it can easily be replaced by pulling the old one out and sliding a new one in"

IMPORTANT: TruSlate® Slates are crafted from natural stone, so there may be variations in color between different slates. In addition, slate can fade or weather over time and each slate may fade or weather slightly differently, creating a natural mix of colors.

*Note: The term “unfading” is a natural slate roofing industry term for those slates which are least likely to exhibit significant color change or weathering over time (i.e. maximum color stability).
