Virginia Geological Survey

In Virginia, limestone, dolostone, sandstone, quartzite, granite, gneiss, basalt, greenstone, aplite, slate, and marble are all quarried for use as crushed stone. Some of Virginia's limestone production is also processed for making cement and lime. Mine safety dust is also produced from limestone quarried in southwest Virginia.

Limestone

Limestone is a common type of carbonate sedimentary rock.It is composed mostly of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3).Limestone forms when these minerals precipitate out of water containing dissolved calcium. This can take place through both biological and nonbiological processes, though biological processes have likely been more
