 Limestone Stone

       Limestone: Lime Stone is known for its wide applications due to its durability and beautiful appearance. Limestone’s unique properties make it an ideal stone for builders.

It is essentially a dolomite stone. Upon wetting and drying there is no apparent delaminating effect. Inderocks offers lime stone slabs, blue (green) limestone, polished limestone and limestone tiles. Kota Blue (Green) & Brown, a popular limestone, that makes an excellent building stone because it can be carved easily.

The specialty of this limestone is in its hardness and it can be used both for interiors as well as exteriors. The polished surface finish shines like a mirror. It has minor colour variation but within tolerance limit. . Polishing on lime Stone provides a shine and smoothness to the surface of stone after cutting into pieces of different sizes and thickness.

These are some major benefits of lime Stone Tough Stone, Non- water absorbent, non-slip flooring, Non-porous Nature, Affordable prices compared to Marble, Easy to Cut in Any Size

Limestone is calcareous sedimentary rocks formed at the bottom of lakes and seas with the accumulation of shells, bones and other calcium rich goods. It is composed of calcite (CaCO3). The organic matter upon which it settles in lakes or seas, are preserved as fossils. Over thousands and millions of years, layer after layer is built up adding weight. The heat and pressure causes chemical reaction at the bottom and the sediments turn into solid stone, the limestone.

The rock which contain more than 95% of calcium carbonate is known as high-calcium limestone. Recrystallised limestone takes good polish and is usually used as decorative and building stone.

A part of calcium molecules if being replaced by magnesium, it is known as magnesium lime stone or dolomite limestone.

Limestone that will take a polish are considered marbles by most people, but technically, if there are still shells visible or the structure is not crystalline, it is still a limestone.
Limestone, like marble and other calcareous stones, are referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on limestone and marbles.

Uses of Limestone

Occurrences of Limestone:

Flaggy Limestone - Different colours of Flaggy Limestone are extensively found in Ranga Reddy, Nalgonda, Guntur, Anantapur, Cuddappah, Kurnool and Mahbubnagar districts. Black flaggy Limestone from Cuddappah is well known all over India.

Flaggy Limestone - Kotastone from Kota is a fine-grained limestone, which comes in distinct colours of greenish-blue & brown. Non-water absorbent, no-slip & non-porous kotastone is a preferred stone for flooring and cladding. Flaggy limestone from Jaisalmer, which is yellow in colour, is renowned for its consistency in colour. An interesting variety of the stone contains exotic fossils imprinted in it. Prominent clusters are Ramganjmandi, Jhalawar, Nimbahera, Kota and Jaisalmer. Internationally, the stone has been used in places all over the globe like, major tube stations of London, Zurich & Frankfurt airports etc.

Limestone - Gujarat is endowed with vast resources of limestone of all grades and millioitic limestones have reached even export market for construction activities. It is soft and dirty yellow in colour which can easily be cut and trimmed. Hence normal skilled labourers are able to bring trimmed blocks of various sizes to fit in to any type of construction. Another type of yellow limestone is being quarried in Kachchh district and it takes very good polish. It is mostly used for flooring purposes within the state.
