Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Many limestones are composed from skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. A significant portion of the global limestone industry is shared by limestone India. Among various dimensional stones, limestone figures as one of the most extracted and commercially viable stones. Limestone is sourced from different regions of India.

Limestone has numerous uses: as a building material, as aggregate for the base of roads, as white pigment or filler in products such as toothpaste or paints, and as a chemical feedstock. Like most other sedimentary rocks, most limestone is composed of grains. Most grains in limestone are skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. Limestone was also a very popular building block in the Middle Ages in the areas where it occurred, since it is hard, durable, and commonly occurs in easily accessible surface exposures. Andhra Pradesh has the privilege of possessing about 32% of the country's total reserves of limestone.

More than two-third of India's production of limestone comes from five states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh each of which contribute more than 9 per cent of the country's output of the mineral. Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh (each producing over 5 per cent of the country's lime­stone) account for another 28 per cent of the coun­try's production of limestone. Limestone depos­its are of sedimentary origin and occur in almost all geological formations of the country except Gondwanas.
