Limestone is defined by these two criteria: it is a sedimentary rock 1 and it is composed of calcium carbonate 2 . There are other rocks that are composed of calcium carbonate. Carbonatite is a rare type of igneous rock and marble is a common metamorphic rock. Both are chemically composed of calcium carbonate, but they are not limestones because they are not sedimentary rocks.
