Limestone (mineral) Article about Limestone (mineral) by

The chemical composition of pure limestone approaches the theoretical composition of calcite (56 percent CaCO and 44 percent CaCO 2). Limestones in which the content of MgO is between 4 and 17 percent are called dolomitic limestones. As the magnesium content increases, limestones pass through a series of intermediate varieties into the
