Natural Stones - Hard
& Strong Limestones
is a sedimentary rock composed largely of Calcium Carbonate. It
is believed that Limestone is formed in the sea beds. Besides Calcium
Carbonate, Limestone is made up of many different minerals such
as silica, magnesium and other organic materials such as shells,
plants and other sea animals.
rocks are strong and hard. They make excellent building materials
and can be carved easily. These stones can be used in varying atmospheric
conditions thanks to their high degree of resistance.
various minerals that make up a limestone rock effect its
colors and shadings. Limestones are available in colors
such as blue, shades of pink, yellow, brown, gray and red.
The surface of limestone can take a plethora of finishes such
as polished, honed, smooth and sawn etc.
uses of Limestone are many.
Limestone Blocks, Limestone
Limestone Tiles and
Limestone Countertops are all available and used for different
You may look around and see many different
applications of Limestone such as
on their application, Limestones are available with a natural or
polished surface. Limestone mining and limestone quarrying
are large part of the Building and Construction Industry
the world over.
Quarries are rich resources of Limestone rocks. A large process
of excavation is carried out to procure Limestone Blocks.
are Limestone Blocks?
blocks are nothing but large masses / entities of Limestone rock.
Such blocks of Limestone are solid and have a low water absorption
level. Available in colors such as yellow, pink, red etc,
these large Limestone blocks are further processed and cut
into smaller shapes and sizes depending on their application. Limestone
slabs and tiles are created from limestone blocks.
are Limestone Slabs?
slabs are flat pieces of Limestone. By the process of sawing,
limestone slabs are manufactured from large blocks of limestone.
Slabs of Limestone are cut into different sizes and thickness making
them suitable for a number of exterior as well as interior applications.
Limestone slabs take good polish, they look attractive when
used for flooring, cladding etc. The uses of Limestone are
many and what makes limestone an excellent building material is
its resistance to extreme temperatures. Limestone slabs are available
in a variety of colors such as brown, yellow, pink, red etc.
are Limestone Tiles?
tiles are four sided (square / rectangular) pieces of limestone.
By sawing Limestone blocks, limestone slabs and limestone tiles
are created. Depending on their usage, limestone tiles are cut into
different sizes of varying thickness.
Tiles can have a polished or a natural finish. Limestone tiles are
used for both interior as well as exterior applications.
Limestone floor tiles and limestone pavements are common products
of limestone tiles. Limestone tiles have a low water absorption
level and take good polish.
Counter tops are flat planks of limestone that come in handy in
kitchens, showroom etc. Limestone is a good choice for countertops
due to its texture and natural look.
resistant to water and extreme temperatures, limestone countertops
are ideal for gardens. They are useful and attractive.
