Title: Indian Limestone Slabs


1
What makes Indian limestone slabs best in the
world?
2
What is the first building material that comes to
your mind after hearing the word Indian natural
stones? For most exotic builders, it would be a
marble. For those who understand the market of
the natural stones, Indian limestone will always
be the top product from the sub-continent. Indian
limestone slabs are known for their strength and
longevity.
3
Only a few natural stone varieties can match the
physical properties of the Indian limestone
slabs. Other than its robust durability and
material strength, the limestone slabs are also
used for decorative purposes. Modern day
sculpting, statue making, restoration of historic
monuments and building of designer residential
rooms rely a lot on the quality and quantity of
the top-grade Indian limestone tiles, blocks and
slabs. Contemporary limestone slabs are chiselled
for the sake of maintaining their natural
gradient and smooth finish. In countries where
limestone slab making is still in its nascent
stage, the gradient is inconsistent and
non-uniform owing to the use of electrical and
mechanical saw machines.

Appearance of the Indian Limestone Slabs
Indian limestone slabs have a rather rough and
earthy appearance. It instantly connects with the
mood and taste of the clients who prefer to buy
them over other exotic natural stones like
marbles, granite, sandstone, slatestone and
quartzite. The very reason that the limestone
slabs dug exported from India are chiselled, they
can be catalogued into a multitude of designer
tiles, slabs and claddings.
5
What are the common grains associated with the
Indian limestone slabs?
  • The common grains of the Indian limestone slabs
    are based on the mode of chemical precipitation
    that gets deposited. They are classified as
  • Calcite Oraragonite
  • Oolitic limestone slabs
  • Speleothems
  • Speleotherms are found mostly in deep caves where
    they take the form of stalagmites and
    stalactites. Granular structures are quite
    evident in the Indian limestone slabs derived
    from the Oolite varieties.

Carbonate Grains found in the Limestone
Limestone pavements are world famous tiling
structures that come with a natural look. They
are formed from the skeletal remains of
fossilized organisms. The Indian limestone slabs
are basically a sedimentary type of rock largely
comprising of coral remains and foraminifera.
They are a grainy structure made of compounds of
carbonates and calcites. Other carbonate grains
that are part of the Indian limestone slabs are
ooids, intraclasts and extraclasts. Aragonites
are the shell-like structures that are primarily
found in the Indian limestone slabs.
7
Common Impurities in Indian Limestone Slabs
What imparts the Indian limestone slabs with its
scintillating features and engrossing colours are
actually oxides and impurities. Silica, sand
particles and iron impurities are also present in
variable amounts. Chert are also known to give
the limestone slabs they vivid pattern. Together
with flint, jasper and chalcedony, the various
organisms that are engraved in the sedimentary
rocks form an intricate system of beautiful
structures. Other common impurities that are
found in Indian limestone slabs are quartz,
sandstone, dolomite and clastic sand particles.
