Limestone

 

Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed over millions of years from deposits of marine invertebrates. Over time these beds build up, are duplicated, and become further compacted by the weight and/or pressure caused by movement of the earth¹s crust. The dominant colour of limestone is cream but Minerals, often oxides of iron, help to decide the various colours of stone available from white, black, grey, buff and yellow. Additionally, throughout the range there will often be found with numerous fascinating fossilized remains in evidence.
