An analysis of four specimens of Burlington limestone from near Oakville, Louisa County, was recently made in the chemical laboratories of Cornell College. The rock is hard, compact and crystalline in structure. There seems to be a pure white variety and one with a decided tinge of yellow. We were surprised at the small percentage of magnesium in all the specimens analyzed.
