On my part; I used limestone for outside decoration few times. I never checked limestone's properties if it had any use in refractory parts. I never saw it used with fire. If you did some research and if it wasn't the world s best kept secret please let us know people may find it useful in the forum. This question was brought up 3rd time over here now.
But I worked with soapstone hearths when in Europe. This is great material to work with, although it gets very hot and waiting time can be long to used the oven after the initial fire is left to slow down (but this is great for larger ovens in restaurants.) r
