    Limestone is a very common sedimentary rock consisting of calcium carbonate (more than 50%). It is the most common non-siliciclastic (sandstone and shale are common siliciclastic rocks) sedimentary rock.Limestones are rocks that are composed of mostly calcium carbonate (minerals calcite or aragonite). Carbonate rocks where the dominant carbonate is dolomite (calcium

    Sedimentary Rocks and the Rock Cycle

    Sedimentary rocks are formed by the lithification of inorganic and/or organic sediments, or as chemical precipitates. There are two types of sedimentary rocks: Clastic and Chemical Clastic sedimentary rocks form when existing parent rock material is weathered, fragmented, transported, and deposited in layers that compact
