Our calico limestone adds an extra dimensional value to architectural design.  From color mixtures of blue, brown, green, gray, black, rust and tan come enriching colors for interior or exterior use.  Your stone mason will find that our calico limestone is one of the easiest working stones available.  Hearths, mantles, coping, treads, arches, risers, sills, signs, sawn flooring, and fireplace surrounds are examples of the use of our calico limestone.
