Limestone is a hard rock, mainly composed of calcium carbonate. This stone is formed by accumulating shells, coral, algae, or direct crystallization from water. Sedimentary rocks are specifically formed When marine animals like oysters, clams, and mussels extract calcium carbonate to make shells and bones. When they die, the bones and shells fall into the seabed and form sedimentary rock. A common type of sedimentary rock, limestone, is widely found in the Indian Ocean, Caribbean Sea, islands around the Pacific Ocean, and the Gulf of Mexico.
