Limestone Serene & Sensuous
This neutral and versatile stone blends delicacy and refinement. It has a consistent color scheme that adds warmth to a classic or contemporary home. When a surface is honed or polished, it takes on a more refined appearance. The aged and antique appearance of tumbled limestone is appealing. It has a lived-in and relaxed feel to it. This stone develops a patina over time, giving it an antique look. Limestone is made up of layers of skeletons and shells of sea creatures that lived millions of years ago in warm seas. Seashells and fossils are often found on the surface. It’s a one-of-a-kind natural stone that often hides secrets from our history. Marble is formed when limestone recrystallizes or “changes shape.” Limestone varies greatly in hardness, density, and porosity from stone to stone. Some limestones are very soft and should not be cut on while others are very dense and hard and can be finished to a polished or a glossy shiny surface. Even though limestone may require occasional sealing and more frequent dusting to prevent scratching, it is a beautiful and durable natural stone. It will last your lifetime.
