Limestone—A Crucial and Versatile Industrial Mineral

Although limestone is common in many parts of the United States, it is critically absent from some. Limestone is used to produce Portland cement, as aggregate in concrete and asphalt, and in an enormous array of other products, making it a truly versa- tile commodity.

Illinois State Geological Survey Limestone ISGS

A sedimentary rock consisting primarily of calcium carbonate (the mineral, calcite). Limestone is generally formed by accumulation, mostly in place or with only short transport, of the shells of marine animals, but it may also form by direct chemical precipitation from solution in hot springs or caves and, in some instances, in the ocean.

Limestone Arkansas Geological Survey

Limestone The principal mineral of limestone is calcite (CaCO3), a form of calcium carbonate. Dolostone is quite similar to limestone, but is composed mostly of the mineral dolomite (CaMg (CO3)2). Both are sedimentary rocks that occur as thin to massive beds of fine- to coarse-grained rock.

Utah’s Limestone Utah Geological Survey

Jan 01, 2006 Limestone is a common sedimentary rock composed mostly of calcium carbonate. It constitutes about 15% of the earth’s sedimentary rocks by volume. Most limestone formed from the accumulation and cementation of skeletal and shell fragments from plants and animals that lived in shallow waters of oceans and lakes.

Limestone Arkansas Geological Survey

The principal mineral of limestone is calcite (CaCO3), a form of calcium carbonate. Limestone is composed of material derived by both chemical and biological activities. Often, little distinction is made between limestone and dolostone because they are often interchangeable in their uses. Both are frequently sold under the name of limestone.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock that may contain fossils. True marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to elevated temperatures and pressures in Earth’s crust. True marble typically contains no fossils because the metamorphic process obliterates them from the rock. Missouri Geological Survey P.O. Box 250 Rolla
