Is it exactly in inches or is it in metric measurements?

I think Liam is correct. It looks like Vermont Black from Newmont. Newmont hammer drills their slate so that there is a counter sink. The holes look drilled not punched, and there's a counter sink.

It looks like it was drilled instead of punched. Is it exactly inch sizes or is it metric? that would narrow it down a bit. The holes are awfully close to the sides too. Maybe Brazilian?
