What is limestone?
definition of limestone
Limestone is defined as a white or gray rock used in the building materials and cement industries,and it is a sedimentary rock that consists of calcium carbonate, which comes in the form of calcite or aragonite, and may contain This stone contains large amounts of magnesium carbonate-dolomite, and it includes many secondary components such as clay, iron carbonate, pyrite, quartz, and feldspar. ), and possesses a granular texture ranging in grain size from 0.001 mm to visible particles, and these grains consist of microscopic fragments of fossil animal shells

United.

How is limestone formed?
Limestone formed in water by accumulating calcium carbonate sediments with skeletons of previous life forms that died in the ocean, and mixed with other rock deposits over time.
Limestone is formed by the evaporation process, where this process occurs through the leakage of water droplets on the walls of the caves and then transmitted through the fractures, and then this water is evaporated leaving behind calcium carbonate that forms the limestone
