Lime Stone

Limestone makes up about 10% of the total volume of all sedimentary rocks. Limestone is formed when ocean-dwelling organisms such as oysters, clams, mussels and coral die, and their shells and bones are broken down by waves and settle on the ocean and converted to limestone by the pressure of the ocean water over ages. The second way limestone is formed is when water containing particles of calcium carbonate evaporate, leaving behind the sediment deposit which compacts under water pressure creating limestone. Widely used by the steel and aluminum industries to clean the ores, there is also a huge perennial demand for this mineral in the cement, fertilizer and water treatment industries in India.  The desired grades of limestone are abundantly available in UAE and adjoining Oman. Vesta International has long term arrangements with various mines in these countries to source and export desired qualities of limestone to the Indian market.
