Finnish rock is usually granite:

Our Missouri foundation is mostly limestone:







It actually quite hard for a sedimentary rock.

Just got 2 Topic reply notifications .... one titled "Hello" and one titled" Heya". but when clicked on ... The Bird Forum tells me "These topics do not exist " !!!!
Did get the Flickr reference ..under "rocks".......
You may like to type "Durness, Sutherland, Scotland" ... here if you click on the Tourist info ... u will find "Limestone Kilns" ... with info ... they are long out of use ... and the building (House) ... which still exists .. used to be an Inn, when the Ferry was functioning across the Loch to Portnancon over the water. The smaller building now collapsed, was where the quarry workers lived. OK
