Granite installation

Can granite tiles be installed over slate on a vertical surface?

If so, is fortified Thinset o.k. to use, or is there a more suitable bonding material?

Thank you

Thumbs up

well, since nobody gave me an answer, I tried it.
For anyone interested, I used a wire brush to clean the slate, making sure to remove any loose sediment and sealers. I used premium Thinset fortified with AdMix to install the granite. Since the slate is porous like any other stone, I assume it will hold as well as other masonry materials. So far so good,
