Actually, my point is that the Wadi where the nummulite limestone is
found is on higher ground. The level of water is not high
enough to easily soak the limestome of the wadi outside of flooding

Davidovits claims that some stones of the pyramid are made of
reaggregate limestones because of the following clues:
- you can find air buble or vegetable debris in some of them
- the nummulites shells do not lay in strates (no sedimentation)
- the density of the stones is higher at the bottom
- the amount of water is much higher than in natural limestone
- the microstructure of the reconstituted limestone is diffrent from
I think these point can't be addressed outside the "concrete hypothesis"
right? To quote Dr Barsoum:
": We hereby acknowledge that nature is quite resourceful and could have
- however unlikely - produced all the microstructures examined herein.
We believe, however, that our work presents enough evidence to entertain
the possibility that crucial parts of the Great Pyramids are indeed made
of reconstituted limestone; only more research will tell."

Again. The process described by Davidovits does not involve as much
