For what it's worth, I would definitely recommend against real slate in your bathroom, especially in the shower. Porcelain tile is much more durable, it won't flake off, and it doesn't absorb water, shampoo, soap, and other stains.

For recommendations, it depends on what you want. I just installed some pretty cool slate tile but it was a flat charcoal gray color. I'm guessing you probably want the multicolored look?

Additionally, you may have to temper you desire for a tall bypass door. Those can be tricky because taller doors weigh more and there can be issues with the weight of the glass causing the cross bar to sag or bend.

A frameless door that is hinged on one side doesn't need a header and might be a good solution. You can get them in 30 or even 36 inch doors if you want.
