Indiana Limestone's technical term (Salem Limestone), is a basic building block of the construction industry and a chief material from which aggregate, cement, lime and building stone are made. Limestone is a rock primarily formed of calcium carbonate, it was deposited millions of years ago as marine fossils decomposed at the bottom of a shallow inland sea. Quarried in south central Indiana between Bloomington and Bedford is the highest quality quarried limestone in the world. Its warm natural beauty coupled with the that that it ages gracefully and naturally makes Limestone the perfect choice for all your building needs. Indiana limestone can be sawn, planed, turned on a lathe or hand worked to match your vision perfectly. The proven durability and the fact that it is virtually maintenance free makes Indiana Limestone extremely cost effective to use.
