More About Limestone
A sedimentary rock, limestone is composed primarily of different crystal forms of calcium carbonate. Limestone has long been a favourite of builders and was used to build everything from the pyramids of Egypt to Medieval cathedrals and castles. It was very popular for public buildings during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and it has also been widely used for sculptures. Limestone’s timeless appeal comes from its natural beauty, availability, and ease-of-quarrying. It is softer and easier to cut than many other natural materials.
Today, limestone is still used in numerous building applications, including cement and mortar; purified forms of limestone are used in paper, tiles, plastics, paint and even in cosmetics, medicine, and toothpaste. Calcium derived from limestone is used in bread, cereal, and tortillas. Limestone plates are used in lithography. Decorative limestone gravel is a by product of limestone cut to use for building projects and is available in several colours.
