Read More About Sandstones :

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock group which is mostly made up of tiny grains of quartz. Most sandstone is formed in oceans, lakes and rivers where tiny bits of rock and dirt settle to the bottom. Year after year, these layers of sand get buried under tons of more sand and dirt until it is turned into solid rock. Sandstone can be found in many colors.

Use of Marble :

  • It is ideal for carving and architectural uses as pillars, arches, garden furniture, fountains, landscaping products and stone arts & crafts.
  • Rough and weathered sandstone is used as fireplaces, walls, and walkways.
  • In chemical industries as flooring, wall fixing and lining due to its acid and alkali resistant properties.
  • Crushed in concrete and asphalt to fill in dike and jetty construction.
  • As bookends, clocks, paperweights, coaster, etc.
  • Sandstone blocks are used as foundations and stonewalls.
  • Sandstone slabs and sandstone tiles are used in cladding.

Physical Properties of Sandstone :

Physically, they are very Hard, Compact, Fine grained, equi-granular homogeneous rocks of sedimentary nature (Sandstone)

Color Minor color tonal variations exist but within the tolerance limit.
Hardness 6.5 to 7 on Moh’s Scale
Density 2.3 to 2.4 Kg/cm3
Compressive Strength 90 to 140 N/mm2
Modulus of Rupture  16 to 40 N/mm2
Water Absorption  1.0 – 1.2 %
Porosity Low to very low
Weather Impact Resistant

Note : Teakwood and Rainbow sandstones differ from above physical properties.

Chemical Properties of Sandstone :

Chemically they are very resistant Mono-Mineralic rocks, principally composed of silica. The other minor constituents vary from origin to origin.

Silica (SiO2) 95-97%
Fe2O3 0.5-1.50% (varies with variety)
Alumina (Al2O3) 1 to 1.5%
Soda (Na2O) & Potash (Kro) Less then 1%
Lime (CaO) Less then 0.5%
Magnesia (MgO) Less then 0.5%
Loss On Ignition (LOI) Less then 0.5%
