Hard Rock Flooring specialises in limestone and we are constantly sourcing different types.
Most limestone is oolitic which means it is formed from minute pieces of shell or grains of sand stuck with calcium carbonate from the sea. In some limestone there are considerable amounts of fossil from the amount of creatures on the seabed during the stones formation. These differences affect both the colour and strata of the stone, and therefore its potential applications.
