Limestone an overview: Limestone is a generally sedimentary rock of biochemical origin. Limestone is created generally of the mineral calcite. There is some limestone, that is almost pure calcite thus they are known as pure limestone, but there are limestone that is filled with lots of several other minerals and sand and hence, they are known as unclean limestone. The calcite is derived normally from the remains of organisms for instance crinoids, corals, clams, brachiopods and bryozoans. These organisms or creatures live beneath the sea, when such creatures die their shells gathered into heaps of Shelly Rubble. And then this Rubble can form beds of limestone. Some limestone may have been derived from non-biogenic calcite growth. Although some limestone can be nearly pure calcite, there is often a large amount or sand or silt that is included in the Shelly Rubble.

Varieties of Limestone


There are several of different names used for limestone. These names are actually based upon they way the rock is formed, its look or its composition and with other features.

 

Below here is some of the most commonly used limestone.

 

Chalk: Chalk is a soft limestone with a very excellent touch that is usually white or light gray in color. The formation of it is mainly from the calcareous shell remains of microscopic marine organisms such as foraminifers or the calcareous remains from several types of marine algae.

Coquina: A poorly-cemented limestone that is composed mainly of broken shell debris. It often forms on beaches where wave action segregates shell fragments of similar size.

Fossiliferous Limestone: A limestone that contains clear and plentiful fossils. These are usually shell and skeletal fossils of the organisms that produced the limestone.

Lithographic Limestone: A dense limestone with a very fine and very uniform grain size that occurs in thin beds that separate easily to form a very smooth surface.


Oolitic Limestone: A limestone composed mainly of calcium carbonate "oolites", small spheres formed by the concentric precipitation of calcium carbonate on a sand grain or shell fragment.

Travertine: A limestone that is formed by evaporative precipitation, frequently in a cave, to produce formations for instance stalactites, stalagmites and flowstone.

Tufa: A limestone that is produced by precipitation of calcium-laden waters at a hot spring, lake shore or else other location.


There is an important place of limestone in construction field; which can be used for building materials but are not quite as strong as sandstone and granites that’s the reason Limestone is easily weathered by acidic condition. Limestone is the prime resource of lime for cements. Cement is considered as one of the most important construction materials ever invented by man. Limestone can also be used by crushing it and used as road ballast. Important amount of limestone is quarried around the worldwide for these reasons.
