Kota Black Limestone
Black limestone is a stone which is a natural beautiful black, greyish shade on a riven surface. It has an elegant soft riven finish making it an ideal surface for patio furniture and the like to rest on. It is also known as black kadapha, it is an attractive, durable paving that features a soften riven relief on the surface. These natural limestone slabs are ideal for garden patios and terrace paving.
Natural Black Limestone has an inherently classic look that gives an old-world appeal to any room to give a unique look.
CHARACTERISTICS OF KOTA BLACK LIMESTONE
Kota Black Limestone is a fossilized black limestone which is a natural stone. Its uniform texture allows for frequent white or pink streaks. The main mineral is calcite (95%), and there are also quartz and opaque minerals. One of our most popular paving slabs, Indian Kotah Black Travertine, also known as Kota Black, features a dark blend of natural gray and black. Sometimes a dark blue color appears when it dries. The slightly cracked surface of these patio tables makes them naturally frost-resistant and non-slip perfect for patios, driveways and pools.
Kota Black is a dolomite limestone that has proven to be durable in all climates. It has a typical calcareous texture, usually smooth, sometimes speckled with crows. Unique to limestone, it has a relatively uniform dark gray to black color. Kota Black pavers have serrated edges, and this clean cut and particular color make it an ideal material for modern garden designs and elegant interiors. It can be combined with other gemstones to contrast the color and texture.
VARITIES AND COLOURS OF KOTA BLACK LIMESTONES
Limestone comes in a wide variety of shades and colors, and whether you want gray or black, the color comes from the organic matter embedded in the rock. When limestone elements are mixed with certain colors of clay, you get a black appearance.
Travertine, tufa, caliche, chalk, sparite, and micrite are the varities of limestones.
Black Limestone Finishes In : natural top, calibrated bottom, serrated edge etc.
Black limestone has a grainy texture. The sizes of its components range from 0.001 mm (0.0000 inch) to visible particles. In many cases, these particles are microscopic fragments of fossilized animal shells. Limestone has two origins: (1) biological precipitation from seawater, mainly limestone-secreting organisms and foraminifera; and (ii) mechanical transport and deposition of preexisting ventral sediments forming limestone. Travertine, tuff, limestone, gypsum, slag, and mirite are all types of limestone. Limestone has long fascinated geologists with its rich fossil resources. Much of what is known about geology and evolution comes from the study of fossils buried in limestone and other carbonate rocks. Limestone is also of great commercial importance. Limestone, rich in phosphates due to the chemical action of seawater, is an important source of raw materials for the fertilizer industry. When heated to temperatures of 900–1,000 °C (1,650–1,800 °F), limestone separates calcium carbonate to produce carbon dioxide and lime, which is used primarily in glassmaking and agriculture . Some types of limestone are also used as building stone; They are widely used in pavements, exterior and interior cladding and monuments.
