Ungaged Slate Flooring

I'm bidding a job right now on a slate floor. It's an addition to a kitchen, so the old slate was removed and most of it salvaged. The builder wants me to mix in new slate and relay the kitchen floor, that's now about 75 sqft bigger. I had no idea how hard this suff was to get around here. NOBODY stocks it. It's all special order. It's quarried only about 4 hours away in VT.

I've called the quarry and they can ship me some direct. I'm trying to work out a price. Slate is running about $7 a sqft + shipping from the quarry or around $15 sqft ordered from my local masonry supplier.
It's going to be a mud job (wire lath and cement) slate will be set in thinset mortar.
For interior bluestone (re-cut and re-squared by me) I can get around $20-25 sqft .
I'm just tossing this out there, if anyone works in high end, affluent areas, what would you bid for a 200 sqft slate floor?
