Limestone is a sedimentary rock containing at least 50% of the mineral calcite. Pure limestone is white, and it is built of small opaque crystals invisible to the naked eye. By burnishing limestone high gloss is achieved. It is resistant to various environmental influences, durable and good-looking. Due to its characteristics, its application is especially common in stone masonry as a rock that is easily shaped and processed. Because of the beauty and gentle shades of this material some of the world’s most famous buildings are built of it: Diocletian’s palace in Split, White House in Washington, the Parliament and New Palace in Vienna, the Parliament in Budapest, the Regent’s Palace in Trieste and many others.
