This beautiful sedimentary stone is the result of seashells and sea creature bones settling on the ocean floor. The calcium in the bones & shells combines with the sea's carbon dioxide to form calcium carbonate. When adequate pressure and heat are applied, limestone will crystallize and turn into marble. Limestone is most commonly used in tile for flooring and other purposes, although it is frequently seen in countertops and various bathroom surfaces.
