In general, limestone layers tend to yield more ores and gems per volume mined than those of other stones, which makes them a prime candidate for exploratory mining. Any overburden thus generated will also be doubly valuable compared to regular stone for crafting as a result of limestone's flux property.
"Limestone" is also the name of the seventh month of the dwarven calendar, covering early Autumn.
