A versatile building material that can be used in either commercial or residential construction projects, limestone is considered an affordable solution. Limestone quarries can be found around the world, including very large ones in the United States. Most limestone is softer and less dense than granite and more homogeneous in appearance. We carry a full line of limestones from Portugal, as well as the very well-known Jura Beige and Jura Grey limestones from Germany. All are excellent materials for countertops as well as all flooring applications. An interesting feature of some limestone is that they can have actual fossils throughout the slab. These fossils can be millions of years old.

Appearance: Most limestone from the United States is light in color, ranging from yellow to pink to gray in color. Limestone imported from other countries is often light or even dark red, brown or black.
Features: Select limestone with mineral dolomite present, as this type of limestone can be polished and is harder than other types of limestone.
