Limestone is a sedimentary rock consisting largely of the composed grains. Most of grains in Limestone are skeletons of marine organisms. Limestone is formed by material which settles to the bottom of bodies of water and over millions of years, solidifies (lithifies) into solid rock. Earth movements over extremely long periods of earth’s history can lift limestone miles into the air. Some limestones are not consist of grains and are formed by chemical preciptation of calcite or aragonite, the best example is Travertine.
