Lime Stone Mineral

We are the leading manufacturer and supplier of calcareous sedimentary Lime Stone Mineral in India. We offer our products as per client specification in the best possible condition.

Composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) in the form of the mineral calcite, this sedimentary rock forms from the accumulation of shell, coral, algal and fecal debris. We also deal in high-calcium limestone with 95% calcium carbonate content. Again the recrystallized limestone we offer is usually used as decorative and building stone by our clients.

Limestone is considered as the sole building block in the construction industry. Cement, lime, and building stone are made from this mineral. Furthermore, it is used to make paper, plastics, glass, paint, steel, cement, carpets etc. It is also used in water treatment and purification plants and in the processing of foods and pharmaceutical items.
