Sandstone-Description
Sandstone rocks are sedimentary rocks made from small grains of the minerals quartz and feldspar. They often form in layers as seen in this picture. They are often used as building stones. For thousands, even millions of years, little pieces of our earth have been eroded-broken down and worn away by wind and water. These little bits of our earth are washed downstream where they settle to the bottom of the rivers, lakes, and oceans. Layer after layer of eroded earth is deposited on top of each. These layers are pressed down more and more through time, until the bottom layers slowly turn into rock.
Sandstone has been used in India for centuries. Numerous edifices - forts and palaces - have been constructed using this exquisite natural stone. Sandstone is obtained from sedimentary rocks and is mostly composed of sand-sized grains. It is available in a vast variety of beautiful colors like red, buff, grey, beige and pink. Apart from color, sandstones vary greatly in composition, texture, degree of cementation and layering. Some varieties of sandstones are very hard, strong and durable, making them ideal for construction purposes. Sandstone has an exotic and rustic appeal that is very alluring.
