The science bit...

  • Sandstone is clastic which means that it’s formed from minerals and rock debris.
  • It is sedimentary and porous. Sandstone is comprised of medium sized grains.
  • It is also called an Arenite. Arenites are “clean,” this means that they have below 15% matrix (clay) content compared to Wacke sandstones that are “dirty” and have a greater clay content. These definitions are derived from the Dott Scale.
  • When the sandstone is cut down or cross-sectioned it often features mineral rings which are call Liesegang rings or bands. It’s not entirely clear what occurs to produce them but they are integral to sandstone’s breath-taking appearance.
  • Quartz and fledspar are commonly found in sandstone, they’re present in the Earth’s crust. Feldspar makes up to 60% of the crust.
  • Sandstone’s colouring is usually shades of reds, oranges, browns and pinks with black or white layers. Indian sandstone also offers green hued options.
