$0.14/lb or $280/ton

We offer the unique experience of selecting your own loose limestone. This is one of our most popular options for landscaping and DIY projects. Every stone, no matter the size, thickness, or if it contains a rare fossil, is the exact same price per pound. We also offer delivery on our loose stone if you would like to order loads by the ton as opposed to hand-selecting.

Why is limestone so popular?

One of the many attractions of limestone is its longevity. Throughout thousands of years, limestone has been able to retain its natural look and structural integrity. If you're looking to complete a project that is going to last forever, then limestone is the choice for you.

Another attraction to limestone is its historical significance. From the Great Pyramid of Giza, to the columns of the Parthenon, to the Lincoln Memorial, cultures have used limestone to show resilience and strength through their architecture. Because of the credit it has received for creating monuments throughout history, people want to incorporate it into their own homes.

If you're looking for a stone to complete a project, or even build a home, limestone has, for thousands of years, and will continue to be, a popular choice to get the job done.

What is limestone?

Limestone (calcium carbonate CaCO3) is a type of carbonate sedimentary rock that is the main source of the material lime. It is composed mostly of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of CaCO3. Limestone forms when these minerals precipitate out of water containing dissolved calcium. This can take place through both biological and nonbiological processes, though biological processes, such as the accumulation of corals and shells in the sea, have likely been more important for the last 540 million years. Limestone often contains fossils that provide scientists with information on ancient environments and the evolution of life.

About 20% to 25% of sedimentary rock is a carbonate rock, and most of this is limestone. The remaining carbonate rock is mostly dolomite, a closely related rock, which contains a high percentage of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO3)2. Magnesian limestone is an obsolete and poorly-defined term used variously for dolomite, for limestone containing significant dolomite (dolomitic limestone), or for any other limestone containing a significant percentage of magnesium.[5] Most limestones were formed in shallow marine environments, such as continental shelves or platforms, though smaller amounts were formed in many other environments. Much dolomite is secondary dolomite, formed by the chemical alteration of limestone. Limestone is exposed over large regions of the Earth's surface, and because limestone is slightly soluble in rainwater, these exposures often are eroded to become karst landscapes. Most cave systems are found in the limestone bedrock.
