Additional Details:
After limestone is quarried it is stored in stock piles such as shown in this painting by Howard Fogg. This Oolitic limestone after seasoning is then cut, shaped and carved into building stone. Many of America's most beautiful buildings are made of Indiana limestone. Its remarkably smooth texture results from its organic formation from the fossil remains of tiny marine organisms of pre-historic times.
