What is limestone and how is it used?
Limestone is a common sedimentary rock derived from the fossil deposits of marine animals and composed mainly of calcium carbonate. The complex organic and chemical origins of the sediments are witnessed in limestone’s wide range of textures and fabrics.
Limestone is generally less expensive than other stones because of its wide availability and comparatively easy fabrication. It is often used in residential and commercial interior and exterior cladding, fireplace surrounds, entryways, landscaping and other design elements.
