The vitreous pink limestone have natural cleft finish and subtle soothing shades. It adds a graceful touch to living and working area. It is specially suitable for wall cladding, flooring and other construction purposes. This stone is very tough and resistant to slip. High resistance to freezing and thawing conditions make Lime pink ideal for commercial sites. The stone can be sawn, sandblasted brushed, honed and polished. Lime pink limestone is available in different forms such as tiles, slabs, cobbles and blocks. Edges of the stones are smoothened to ensure no breakage during transportation or application at the site. The frost resistant lime pink is a versatile stone that can withstand all weather conditions.

Chemically, both limestone and marbles are siliceous calcium carbonate rocks.
Lime (CaO) - 38-42%
Silica (SiO2) - 20-25%
Alumina (Al2O3) - 2-4%
Other Oxides like Na, Mg - 1.5 to 2.5%
Loss On Ignition (LOI) - 30-32%
Limestone, like marble and other calcareous stones, are referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on limestone and marbles.
