Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed at the bottom of lakes and seas, as organic matters settle to the bottom. As more and more layers build up over thousands and millions of years, adding more and more weight, the heat and pressure cause chemical reactions to take place to harden the sediments into solid stone is It consists mainly of calcium that was deposited by the remains of marine animals. Colors may range from creamy whites and yellows to browns and blacks that impart warmth and subtlety to any structure.
Limestones are ideal for today's more casual and comfortable environments. The soft beiges and tans are suitable for bathrooms, fireplaces, counters and floors, although they are appropriate for exterior applications as well. In locations that are susceptible to freezing temperatures, travertine is normally used for interior wall cladding and decoration only.
Limestone conveys calmness and serenity. Mystique and romance. A very soft, sensuous, and elegant natural stone.
