Limestone is widely used as a building stone since it is readily available and easy to work with. It is a sedimentary stone, layered and formed from the skeletons and shells of sea creatures that live in the vast, warm seas millions of years ago.
Many varieties of domestic limestone are gray to buff in color, while some pastel shades of yellow and pink also exist. Imported limestone is available in colors ranging from light beige to dark brown, red, and black. When the mineral dolomite is present, it makes the limestone harder and capable of being polished in the same manner as metamorphic marble.
