Limestone is not a hard stone and has a Mohs rating around 3 and 4 (out of 10) compared to granite which ranks around a 6. Limestone is great multi-functional stone that you can use around your fireplace or outside around your patio to host your guests.

* Natural stone, like nature, has its own distinct characteristics inherent to natural products.  Variations in color, pattern, texture and size are to be expected.  Final products are not always an exact match to samples and images, since they are quarried at different times from varying locations.
