Limestone is understated, resistant and subtle.
Limestone is used on some of the most stunning buildings in the world. some of these buildings are hundreds of years old but the clean white limestone makes them look like they were built yesterday.
limestone is ideal for use on floors, walls, steps and as outdoor pavers. limestone is a sedimentary stone made up of at least 50% calcium carbonate with the remainder including clay, silt, quartz or pebbles. clay is the source of colouring in many limestones because it contains iron oxides that yield yellow through to red tones.
most limestone is composed of grains or fragments of biological origin that add character. the appearance of very small fossils is quite common and whilst they often look like shells they are far more likely to be marine invertebrates.
