Slate Monolith SM97 Standing Stone
Slate Monolith SM97 is an absolute beauty crammed full of character and ruggedness. Measuring around 410mm tall, the base is thick and substantial and the stone is quite blocky. The front face has a gentle sloping feel to it, reducing in thickness towards the top. The subtle textures of real Welsh Slate are magnified on this beautiful Large ornament with every side covered in unique natural stone detailing. This is a slate grey colour mixed with splashes of ‘fools gold’ iron pyrite, adding to the rustic tones. The shape and style of this piece would be ideal for a Japanese style garden.
This piece can not be drilled as a water feature.
LED Lighting and Slate Chippings available in the Basket.

Medium Stone Monoliths are becoming increasingly difficult to source, and Slate Monolith SM97 is an excellent example of a striking piece to be included in a medium or large scale garden design. This imposing tower of real Welsh Slate echoes the countries’ ancient forts such as Dolwyddelan Castle near Betws Y Coed and Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber in Pembrokeshire. This piece is quite different to our normal designs as the top is sawn aswell as the base. This is suitable for drilling as a water feature and due to the large surface area will create great interest when water starts to run over the top. This will make a great feature even when not running as a water feature. Smaller slate monoliths descending in size would complete this feature and make a great focal point. We can supply smaller monoliths and rockery pieces to compliment this stunning slate water feature. We’re also going to experiment polishing the top which will create a slightly darker colouration but will create an absolute mirror finish.
Delivery is via trusted courier or by Ioan Raymond himself. Slate Monolith SM95 is made from 100% natural Welsh Slate, sourced from a North Wales quarry and hand finished by Ioan Raymond in his Southampton Workshop. Many customers like to use monoliths with a number of our garden accessories, including slate stepping stones, 20mm chippings and LED Lighting (available in the basket when purchasing a monolith).
