Limestone
Limestone is just about everywhere. You may be standing on it right now! Powdered limestone mixed with
other ingredients forms cement. Cement mixed with sand
and rock makes concrete.
Marble
Marble is a metamorphic rock formed when limestone is
put under great pressure and heat. Marble is polished to
make sculptures and building materials that are beautiful
and strong.
