HOW IS NATURAL STONE FORMED? — Bellstone

2016-9-9  Travertine is created when floodwaters wash through limestone, leaving mineral deposits throughout. As it dries out, the extra minerals solidify to gradually create a much denser material called travertine. This stone is good as a replacement for marble or granite, as it’s much lighter and easier to work with, yet still durable.

2016-10-13  Oolitic limestone consists of substantial amounts of "oolites" or "ooliths." Oolites are small spherical or sub-spherical grains of concentric calcite. The actual classification of limestones and marbles can be very confusing to the non-geologists.The same stone can be marketed one time as a limestone and, at another time and place, sold as marble.

Louis E. Martino, in Bio-Geotechnologies for Mine Site Rehabilitation, 2018 31.3.3 Open Limestone Channel. Open limestone channels (OLCs) are constructed to direct AMD flows within a channel that has been lined with limestone. An OLC is very much like an ALD without a cap. An OLC is an oxygenated environment, so the Fe present in the AMD can “armor,” or coat, the
