Grey Stone Honed 3cm Limestone
Limestone is widely used as a building stone since it is readily available and easy to work with. It is a sedimentary stone, layered and formed from the skeletons and shells of sea creatures that lived in vast, warm seas millions of years ago. Much domestic limestone is gray to buff in color, while some pastel shades of yellow to pink are available. Imported limestones are available in colors ranging from light beige to dark brown, red and black. When the mineral dolomite is present, it makes the limestone harder and capable of being polished in the same manner as metamorphic marble.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock consisting predominantly of calcium carbonate or dolomite. Limestone continues to be a popular choice for those clients seeking a more subtle tone. Most commonly used colors are earth tones and grays, darker browns and other colors are available. As with most natural stones the durability of limestone spans a wide range. It is heat resistant but care should be taken to avoid scratching and house hold acids as it can etch. Sealer should be applied to avoid staining issues. Pending the end users tolerance for normal wear and tear, regular care and maintenance should be expected over time. Sophisticated and timeless, limestone remains a classic material selection.
