Limestone is a sedimentary stone that consists of seashells and the bones of sea creatures that have settled to the ocean floor. Calcium in the sediment combines with carbon dioxide in the water to form calcium carbonate, the basic structure of all limestone and marble. Limestone contains subtle variations in color and veining as a result of minerals that are present during formation. These naturally occurring variations add to the distinctiveness and beauty of the stone.

Limestone Type & Finishes
Limestone is removed from the earth in large blocks before it is cut into what can be recognized as travertine tile. After the Limestone is quarried, it is strictly selected for color variances. Beyond the selection process, the limestone may be subject to any of the following processes:
The marble is literally tumbled with gravel and bearings, giving it a rough-hewn, aged appearance.
The surface of the tile is sanded to create a matt finish.
The travertine is sanded and polished, producing a shiny look.
Brushed Travertine Finish
A wire brush is used to give the surface of the marble tile a worn, textured surface.
