Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcite and aragonite. Certain types of limestone may contain small fossils and marine skeletal fragments that give the stone a natural, organic element.
The ability of limestone to readily adapt to various architectural styles, along with its pleasing natural color, ease of shaping, and its durability are advantages that have all worked together to maintain the stone’s popularity throughout the years. The Great Pyramid in Egypt contains an outer covering of limestone.
Popular uses include flooring, interior and exterior wall cladding, fireplaces and backsplashes. The static coloring among slabs makes it a popular choice for both current and future projects that contain expansion plans.
