Limestone 3/4″or 1″ Minus
Our products, Limestone 3/4” or 1” Minus, are types of crushed limestone—one is ¾” rock down to the dust, and the other is 1” down to the dust. The “minus” indicates that it includes various stone sizes, along with the dust and particles resulting from the crushing process.
