Jerusalem Stone Limestone Panels by StonePly

Jerusalem Stone limestone originally formed at the bottom of an ancient, shallow tropical sea. Calcium carbonate forms and builds up around grains of sand or pieces of shells or coral, cementing them together. Over time limestone is formed. Jerusalem Stone limestone is quarried in Israel. The beautiful soft tone of Jerusalem Stone is prized for architectural stone panels. With StonePly panels the aluminum panel strengthens the limestone. In fact Stoneply panels have 60 times the impact strength of un-reinforced limestone panels.

Jerusalem Stone limestone is a beautiful natural stone.
