St Marc Dore Limestone and all Compas Limestones are available in a wide range of colors. Warm reds, oranges, yellows, creams, corals, greys, and whites amongst them. In addition to colors, the stone itself might have a solid dense look or a more fossilized and crystalline appearance. If you’re utilizing limestone for a residential project, the next step is choosing the appropriate finish for the stone. From polished, brushed, filled honed or even mechanical finishes creating designs and patterns on the stone.

Each finish has its advantages and technical differences or applications.

Limestone being a sedimentary rock is composed of calcium and formed near water with organic matter making it vulnerable to acids. However due to its density it is an extremely resistant material that will stand the test of time as proven by the Egyptian pyramids.  As such it is suitable in any setting.

Today, limestone is a very popular choice in residential and commercial building. Its resistance, durability and flexibility in any usage or finish options, make it long lasting and soft underfoot.
