The Application of Limestone
Limestone is a raw material that is used globally in a variety of different ways including construction, agriculture, and industrial materials. Limestone is very common in architecture, especially in Europe and North America. Many landmarks across the world, including the Great Pyramid and its associated complex in Giza, Egypt, were made of limestone. So many buildings in Kingston, Ontario, Canada were, and continue to be, constructed from it that it is nicknamed the 'Limestone City'. Limestone, metamorphosed by heat and pressure produces marble, which has been used for many statues, buildings, and stone tabletops. On the island of Malta, a variety of limestone called Globigerina limestone was, for a long time, the only building material available, and is still very frequently used on all types of buildings and sculptures.

Do not do this indoors. It is a dangerous process and several safety precautions must be taken during and around this process. Sealers typically do not prevent the chemical reactions between the alkaline stone and the acidic compounds that they may come into contact with. I still find them useful, just not bulletproof.
