Read More About Indian Limestone :
Limestone is one of the most common types of rock found on the surface of the Earth. Limestone is calcareous sedimentary rock composed of the mineral calcite (CaCO3), which upon calcination yields lime (CaO) for commercial use. In nature, the limestone bed is found to occur in varying purity, generally a part of the calcium molecules being replaced by magnesium tending towards magnesium limestone or dolomitic limestone. In its broadest interpretation the term limestone would include any calcareous material such as marble, travertine, chalk, limeshell, coral and marl where each possess different and distinct physical properties.
Limestone is a beautiful stone and is available in many different colors and shades ranging from white to cream, from tones of blues to greys, from tan to and even dark black,such as Tandoor Yellow and Kadappa Black. The rich black colour occurs when there is a high content of organic material. The yellow and brown hues come up to be prominent when there is a high content of iron oxides in the sediment.
Limestone is especially popular in architecture, and many landmarks around the world, especially in the Americas are made primarily of this material. Limestone is readily available and relatively easy to cut into blocks or more elaborate carving. It is also long-lasting and stands up well to vagaries of weather. Limestone can be used to enhance the look of any room in your home and office. Hence, Indian limestone particularly is always the Interior Designers’ stone of choice for its strong, hard wearing and sturdy nature (when properly sealed). Limestone has proven its continuous use from simple treads and pavers to landscaping structures and bridges, to soaring cathedrals over and over again.
Another important thing to note before using Limestone in interior is that it exhibits no preferential direction of splitting. Indian limestone can be cut and carved in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. It can be sawed, planed, turned on a lathe or hand worked to match the requirements of demanding architectural space designs.
An important advantage of using Indian Limestone in your building project will be the consistency of deposit of limestone. Rachana Stones supplies limestone that is extremely homogenous for a natural product.
