Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed mostly of calcium carbonate. The stone can be formed by a hydrological process, dissolving calcium carbonate in carbon dioxide, or by a biological process, accumulating calcium carbonate through fossil sediments.
Most limestone is composed of skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral and molluscs. It is also used by many interior designers due to its versatility– it can enhance the look and create a timeless classic look. Pure limestone is nearly white in colour, but most of the limestone used for buildings is produced in a range of different finishes, such as cream, black, gold, brown, pink and red. It is a strong, dense stone with few pore spaces, which means it can withstand abrasion and freeze-thaw. Limestone flooring is natural stone material. It is easy to take care of and comes in a variety of natural-looking shades and colours.
