What is Limestone?
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the calcite and aragonite with a small amount of other materials, such as quartz, feldspar, clay minerals, pyrite, siderite, and other minerals. Limestone forms of calcium carbonate usually from skeletal fragments of marine life (Corals or Foraminifera). It usually forms in warm, clear, shallow marine waters. It is a sedimentary rock that is formed from the accumulation of shells, mud, and organic marine debris or chemically formed as build-up of precipitation of calcium carbonate from bodies of water and the way it is formed creates different varieties of known Limestone.
