limestone

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?

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?
