Decrepit remains of a late 1800s smelting kiln, abandoned deep in the woods of the PNW. This kiln is the last remaining structure of an old limestone mining settlement. [OC]
TIL the Great Wall of China is partially built with rice. Scientists found the mortar used in constructing the wall is a "Rice-Lime" composite material. The mix of limestone and sticky rice gives the mortar more stable physical properties which offers resistance to earthquakes and the elements. smithsonianmag.com/histor…

Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada. Great day trip when visiting Las Vegas. $10 car entrance fee. 40,000 acres of sandstone and limestone forma tons. I rented a car and visited recently so its open and a safe distance option during the pandemic. reddit.com/gallery/l8ihd0

A underwater photograph of a cenote or sinkhole in the Yucatán peninsula, Mexico, taken by Nick Blake in 2017. Sinkholes are the result of collapsed limestone bedrock, exposing the groundwater below. With the right timing, lighting and composition, they cane make for spectacular photographs.
Solution Holes are created through chemical reaction between Carbonic Acid rainwater + live and decaying plants and Calcium Carbonate in Limestone. When Solution Holes tap the aquifer, they create Hidden Springs Of The Everglades right here in Miami, FL v.redd.it/jg481cw5zrg61

Katskhi Pillar is a 40m (130ft) high limestone monolith which has a church on the top of it. The church was built over 2000 years ago and every day, monks make a 20-minute ascent via a thin metal ladder to pray in the church.
Limestone is a new type of stone that can be found in underwater caves and sometimes underwater ravines. Limestone has Four variants.
- Limestone, you find this naturally, or by smelting cracked limestone.
- Cracked limestone, you get this by mining limestone.
- smooth limestone, you get this by smelting limestone.
- chiseled limestone, you get this in a stonecutter.
you can make slabs, stairs, and walls, out of cracked, smooth, and normal limestone. Limestone has a hardness of 2.3 and is a nice yellowish-green. Chiseled limestone would have an ocean wave design with an elder guardian eye on it. If you place cracked limestone in a crafting table you get limestone powder, you can place 4 limestone powder in a 2x2 crafting grid to make limestone. Using limestone powder on farmland will turn it into lime-infested farmland, which stops the plant that's on it from growing any more. Limestone powder can also be used as fuel in a blast furnace.

Carving soft limestone
I am about to start carving a local soft limestone for the first time. It has a hardness of only 2. What should I plan as a minimum thickness for parts of the finished carving so it is not too weak?
What would be a minimum detail that is reasonable for this type of stone? Eg. Would it be reasonable to have a planned surface detail of about 5 mm round or will that be too fine to show and to work in this stone?
These are two photos I took back in spring of 2019, when I went to look at a limestone stair restoration project, located at 50 E. Erie, in Chicago. Wasn't until I uploaded the pics back at the office, that I noticed what looks like a ghostly hand shadow. Would like to hear what you guys think! reddit.com/gallery/kn7kxd

Is limestone earth's most plentiful form of bedrock?
Limestone appears to be embedded in the earth amongst many perhaps most or even all contents.
I'm a layperson here so maybe limestone isn't even classified as bedrock, perhaps there is a form of bedrock that takes up more of the earth surface.
Perhaps since earth has layers of solidity vs liquid/magma you can't really be conclusive and say that there is one rock type that outnumbers the rest?
