Limestone

Stone is a material that man has used in building for several thousand years and it still lends itself to modern usage and design, and limestone in its various geological forms is probably the type of natural stone most widely used for this purpose.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock. Many of the commonly used varieties were formed by the accretion of the hard remains of former organisms such as corals and shells. These materials principally comprise calcium carbonate (calcite), as does the cement. Calcite is a relatively soft mineral and careful selection will be needed when you choose this for use as flooring. Variations in the types and quantities of shell and other remains and the nature of the cement provide a huge range in the types of limestone available.

Limestone comes in a variety of colours, textures and finishes so can lend itself to a number of uses both externally and internally.  It is ideal for cladding, ashlar and other forms or walling as well as flooring.  Certain limestones  are suited to carved and moulded work and some can also be polished.
