    Can anyone tell me what the difference between these three types of
    stone are? I inherited alot and I can't figure out which is what.
    What I was told was flagstone might be slate - little bit of a shine
    to it and sometimes breaks in layers. What I thought was bluestone
    could be flagstone. Any way to tell by looking at it or simple tests?
    Thanks.
