A Little Bit about Limestone

Limestone is a durable sedimentary stone that resembles marble. It ranges in hardness from soft and very porous to hard and comes in a variety of finishes, from honed to polished. Typically neutral in color, limestone has a unique, natural appearance, because it is comprised of shells, mollusks, and marine animals that have calcified over millions of years. Fossil impressions are commonly seen in polished limestone. Its applications include flooring, fireplace surrounds, wall cladding, and with the proper care and maintenance, table tops, vanity tops, and countertops.
