"But this isn't marble or limestone. It's… bone?"
―Detta Yao, looking at a wall made of bones[5]

Limestone was a type of white stone which, together with clay, constituted the geology of the[2] Outer Rim Territories planet[6] Bogano.[2] A chain of limestone mountains located beyond the deserts of the forested moon Endor were inhabited by Gorax, a semi-sentient species.[4] Limestone resembled marble and bones,[5] and the Resistance base on the Outer Rim moon Ajan Kloss was built within a limestone cave.[1] Artificial limestone could be used as a building material, such as the walls of Zord's Spa and Bathhouse, a spa located in the city Canto Bight on the Outer Rim planet Cantonica.[3]

Around 3 ABY,[7] archeologists Chelli Lona Aphra, Eustacia Okka, and Detta Yao, along with smuggler Just Lucky and bounty hunter Krrsantan, traveled to the city of Vaale on the planet Dianth in the Malitoris system and saw a wall made of bones that Yao first thought was either marble or limestone.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Limestone first appeared in the canon continuity in the short story "Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing," published as part of the novella Canto Bight on December 5, 2017.[8] Zord's Spa and Bathhouse, including its limestone walls, was set to appear in a scene in[9] the 2017 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi,[10] but it was ultimately cut.[9] It was first pictured in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary written by Pablo Hidalgo.[11]

Limestone was first introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity by Splinter of the Mind's Eye, a 1978 novel written by Alan Dean Foster.[12] In real life, limestone is a type of carbonate sedimentary rock.[13]
