Limestone is fine textured and finished, so it takes on a distinctive, velvety finish when cut for paving. Dark grey, blue-grey, pale grey, cream, and tan colors are usually the easiest to find and limestone tends to be more evenly colored than sandstone or granite. The very fine grain of Limestone makes it relatively easy to cut into all sorts of decorative shapes. Our most popular items include the dark Kota Black and Kota Blue Indian Limestone paving slabs, named due to their sourcing from the Jaipur district of Rajasthan in India.

All-natural Limestone products are unique and will vary in colour and texture, often showing distinctive markings, minor imperfections and may include mineral deposits such as iron and quartzite. Sizes are nominal and may vary to others. Earthstones paving manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches.

Limestone Description:

Limestone is a type of sedimentary rock formed mainly from calcium carbonate. This is often as a result of the accumulation of shell, coral, and algal matter formed in the clear, warm shallow marine waters. Natural limestone paving has a textured feel and a gently undulating surface, but without the riven texture found in sandstone. It is available in a selection of finishes: a natural finish with hand-chipped edges, an antique or tumbled finish where the surface and edges have been smoothed to create an aged appearance and a sawn finish where the surface is flat with a slip-resistant, sand-blasted surface and sawn edges. It is often produced in a calibrated thickness where the variation in thickness of the slab is kept to a minimum to aid the laying process. Its colours are far more consistent across each slab than sandstone.

Limestone Colours:

Limestone tends to come in a choice of three colours, buff/grey, Kota/steel blue and black/ dark grey. The darker black shades can gradually lighten with weathering, however, sealing the paving will help retain the dark colouration. Other minerals may appear within the stone such as quartzite veining and iron oxide.
