Limestone

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of mainly calcium carbonate. As most natural limestone rock formations contain mainly non-crystallized minerals, quarried limestone blocks possess rather uniform composition, texture, and structure. Natural limestone had originally been deposits on shallow sea beds, so they could carry certain visible fossil patterns.

Limestone color ranges from white, blue, beige cream yellow to gray, with many variations of ivory and light gold usually considered most popular for countertop fabrications. Common limestone finishes are honed - "matte", polished and tumbled. Tumbled limestones are mainly for paving applications, while polished and honed limestone slabs tiles are used in flooring and wall covering. Additional limestone uses include kitchen countertop, bar and vanity countertops, tub surrounds, desks, fireplace carvings and other architectural and building applications such as sills, moldings, columns. In some cases, marble has also been called limestone.
