It is inert yes, to be sure pour vinegar on it to see if there is a reaction(bubbling). Also make sure you get "untreated" pieces(no sealers on them). I use 6x6 pieces from HD & Lowes for moss/driftwood etc... and never had any issues.

Edit: I believe there are some reactive types of slate but the chances of coming across them are pretty rare.
