Limestone is an organic sedimentary rock composed millions of years ago in the Jurassic age, from the accumulation of shell, coral and debris forming in shallow marine waters. Limestone is a rock composed largely from different crystal forms of calcium carbonate and it’s not uncommon to find small particles of quartz, clay minerals or pyrite.
Venus Stone offers a range of ethically sourced Limestone paving stones in project packs consisting of a well balanced mix of the highest quality stones, perfect to suit either contemporary or traditional settings. Natural Limestone is an ageless material that gives you the best of both worlds. It has been favoured by designers and landscapers for generations. Not only does it offer superb strength and durability but it also has outstanding visual appeal with dramatic shades, subtle shading and distinctive natural veining. Each piece has a completely unique colour and texture, meaning every lay is completely different ensuring your patio looks great for years to come.
Choose from our Black Limestone, its dark tones suit that current trend for a monochrome palette, or our Blue Black Limestone, similar to the black but with a slight blue tint and a tumbled edge, ideal for an aged and antique look. If you’re wanting something a little more rustic, then browse our Yellow Limestone where the colours vary from yellows to blues and greys, again with a tumbled edge to give real character.
Limestone is perfectly suited for the British Climate making it an ideal choice for most customers wishing to give a tough and durable option that will appear beautifully and weather naturally all year round. Please note that Black and Blue Black limestone can fade with the sun and any slight acidity in rainfall.
