Slab Sunday: Indus Gold Limestone

Indus Gold is a limestone quarried from a bedrock quarry in the Indus Valley region of Pakistan.
It's a really pretty limestone that has some quartz veins and small shells in it.

These next two pictures are of the same kitchen.  I LOVE this kitchen!
The perimeter and island countertops are Indus Gold limestone.  The lower countertop on the island is wood.

The Waterfall edge detail looks great with this limestone.

Indus Gold is also commonly called Inca Gold.  Other names for Indus Gold include: Ouro Real TP, Indus Golden, Indus Gold Dark and Indus Gold Light.

Indus Gold is one of the harder limestones.  It has a really tight grain structure and holds a very high polish.
Being so hard makes it a great option for exterior use.  This is actually my favorite way to see this stone, I think it's beautiful as exterior cladding.

Indus Gold is available in 2 cm and 3 cm slabs as well as tile.
