Lime stone is a type of fossil stone and often has nicely preserved fossils.
Fossil Stone is a dense limestone filled with various organic matter.
It is a sedimentary rock with natural variation and mottling.
Fossil stone has the contrast of this matter and the limestone (main stone).
The limestone background makes for striking and beautiful contrast.
Shells, plants, animals and other organic matter that don’t decay, harden with minerals over time and become fossilized.
This process forms fossil stone which is the preserved remains of animals, plants and organisms from the past.
It is said that customers consider limestone pale however, it is versatile due to its neutral color.
