United Aggregates Highlights Limestone:
Limestone is among one of the most common sedimentary rocks, making up 10 % of all of the sedimentary rock in the world. It is a versatile substance with numerous appearances and uses. Limestone is found worldwide, and is a popular material used by the construction/architectural field for years.
Composition of Limestone:
Limestone is mainly made up of calcium carbonate. It is formed by sediment at the bottom of the ocean, where plant and animal waste settles and is compressed over centuries.
Physical Characteristics of Limestone:
Limestone has many differences in its physical characteristics. Unblemished limestone is white or off-white, but also has many shades of gray. Fun Fact: Classroom chalk, antacid tablets, and some marbles are all made from calcium carbonate.
