    My mistake Sausage, obviously you are very correct. The installation I was thinking about had been labeled as slate in the spec, but caused a serious electrical short during a breakdown. Just found part of the original report which I had not read and this explains that the manufacturers did not follow the specification! Incident happened in my late father in laws mill (Castleton Mills). Always pays to read the full report, even when they are old and as you state, Marble also.

    As for the coloured segments - I have only seen similar in a dyer's premises. This had a hand fixed in the centre and was used to indicate the colour of the dye being processed. Some fabrics take on a very different shade during the dyeing process. However in this case I have no idea and neither does my wife, who has far more knowledge of the textile industry in West Yorks than I have
