Limestone also offers a unique look. It is great to use for fireplace surrounds, but use caution when recommending it for kitchen countertops, and bathroom vanities.
Minnesota limestone is the softest natural stone available and therefore the easiest to stain and scratch. It is extremely porous and therefore use of an acrylic based sealer (which adds a sheen to the appearance) is recommended to protect it.
Limestone is produced from the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate) and sediment. Limestone mainly comes from the beds of oceans, or evaporated seas and lakes and from sea animal shells. Limestone is readily available with large quarries in Southern Minnesota.
