I think all the stone types from reika's geostrata should be added. They can be used in the recipe for vanilla stone tools, and never displace ore. Finally, they only replace 10-20% of vanilla stone, same as vanilla granite and andesite.

I just took the Minecraft Noob test! Check out what I scored. Think you can beat me?!
I agree with this, also it should have a normal stone texture but a lighter gray, as you can see here:
That is Limestone mixed with normal stone. It is still gray, but its a little off and a little brighter. Over all, this makes a lot of sense since Limestone is quite common everywhere.It should also be easier to break than stone, limestone is actually a softer stone. I support this great idea
I agree with what you are saying. I think Limestone should be more unique compared to just normal stone.
Responses in bold. Overall, I find the idea quite interesting as I would like to see more varieties for stone ever since the 1.8.2 update. This would provide more for builds and such. Support.
It seems that most of you guys want Limestone to spawn the same as Granite, Andesite, and Diorite. So i think i will change the original post about that. After all, some of you guys have made some really good points on why Limestone should spawn like the three stones.
Also, i agree with you that builds could look better with more block options.
Few suggestions, I think making it only spawn below Jungle would be good. That would add to the rarity of it. Typically, Limestone would form in the ocean and be found on dry land many years (millions) later, so having it spawn around the coast of ocean biomes would also be an option.
Main suggestion: I think the spawn range of Limestone should be limited (say not below y=40). Below that level, it would spawn less often, but as Marble, which can be formed from metamorphised Limestone. I think the Marble block could be something similar to netherquartz. Could also possibly create Marble using 4 or 9 limestone blocks.
Another option would be to allow Limestone to be created by putting 9 Bonemeal into a crafting table (as limestone is effectively an amalgamation of the skeletons of small marine creatures, usually corals) Making limestone from bonemeal would make some sense.
