Popular limestone applications include flooring and interior & exterior wall cladding and backsplashes.
Cleaning your stone:
- Use warm water and a small amount of neutral pH non-abrasive soap
- Rinse with clear warm water
- Dry thoroughly with a clean soft cloth
Please note: Cleaners and disinfectants made specifically for calcium carbonate based stones are available at most home centers, hardware stores, stone fabrication shops, and flooring centers.
Limestone composite: Limestone is a sedimentary stone with at least 50% by weight calcite or calcium carbonate content. It is a "clastic" sedimentary stone and is composed of grains or fragments of biologic origin, ranging from fossils or organically derived granis that weigh a mere fraction of an ounce, to dinosaur bones that may weigh tons.
Color: The color, veinings, and shadings are caused by substances included in minor amounts during formation. These include iron-bearing minerals, clay, and organic material thought to be residual from the soft parts of tiny marine animals.
