Limestone Stone Data

Limestone Stone Data

Limestone is a kind of sedimentary stone that is very common all over the Mediterranean and Europe. Limestone is made out of the shells of millions of little tiny sea snails and creatures like that. These snails and stuff lived in the sea, billions of years ago, and when they died they fell to the bottom of the sea and rotted, but their shells, which were made of calcium like your teeth, did not rot and just stayed there. Pressure from other shells, and from the water, and from sand being washed over the shells, squashed them all together into rock. Many years later, the sea changed where it was, and all this calcium-rock (limestone) was left on the land.

Convenience of Processing of Iran Limestone

Limestone is easily polished. It is viscous and strong enough, therefore it does not break at once, allowing cutting products of various forms.

Durability of Iran Limestone

Limestone flooring is hard and durable, making it a preferred choice for homeowners who want a stone floor that is cheaper than marble but which, if properly cared for, will last them a lifetime. Though a pricier option than other tile materials, the durability of limestone far outweighs the additional cost.

Water Resistance of Iran Limestone

Water absorption factor of limestone is less than 1% so it can be used for finishing of bathrooms, pools, fountains.

Frost Resistance of Iran Limestone

Limestone practically does not absorb moisture — therefore, there will be no micro cracks from liquid freezing under low temperatures. Products of marble can be used safely in cold premises.

Thermo stability of Iran Limestone

Heat does not influence on limestone, so it can be used for fireplaces or to finishing of premises, where temperatures essentially exceed usual temperature.
