An elegant and regal stone, Lime Green evokes a classic ambiance, a memory of forgotten days and happier times. This stone is popular for its stately appearance and its tendency to improve with age. It is perfectly suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, veneers, backsplashes, counters, walls, and flooring. The lime green limestone features a natural cleft due to strong physical and chemical composition. Ability to withstand extreme climatic conditions make lime green stone ideal for wall cladding and landscaping projects. Lime green stone can be natural sawn, sandblasted brushed, honed and polished. Available in different forms such as tiles, slabs, cobbles and blocks.

Physical PropertiesPhysically, Limestone are Quite impervious, Hard, Compact, fine to very fine grained calcareous rocks of sedimentary nature.
Hardness – 3 to 4 on Moh’s Scale Density – 2.5 to 2.65 Kg/m3 Compressive Strength – 1800 to 2100 Kg/cm2 Water Absorption – Less than 1% Porosity – Quite low Weather Impact – Resistant
Chemical PropertiesChemically, 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.
