Sandstone is a sedimentary rock formed under the oceans, lakes, and rivers. Composed of sand mineral particles quartz or feldspar, this natural stone is very tough and resistant to weathering. It is a popular building and paving material from ancient times.
This natural stone usually forms where sand is laid down and buried. For instance, the famous red rocks of the Grand Canyon were formed in a desert setting. The sand grains in sandstone give information about the past such as the kind of countryside that produced the sand or how far they were transported.
A BUILDING STONE PERFECT FOR OUTDOORS
Depending on the mix of rock fragments, sandstone may have a wide range of colors from nearly white to nearly black, gray, brown or red. As a landscaping and building stone, sandstone is full of character.
Outdoors, this type of natural stone is also used for cladding facades and interior walls. You can find garden benches, patio tables or swimming pool.
After a source rock is weathered and eroded, the resulting sand grains might fill a bowl-shaped basin on land or underwater. With the pressure from more sediments landing above and the movement of water through the grains, the sand becomes sandstone.
Characteristics of Sandstone: A sedimentary rock consisting of sheets of sand, mineral particles, and binding matrix deposited one atop in water environments and desert formations. Very porous and water will penetrate it easily. Brown, red, purple, and pink sandstones are commonly called brownstone.
Sandstone is a rock comprising mostly of minerals formed from sand. The stone gains its formation throughout centuries of deposits forming in lakes, rivers, or on the ocean floor. These elements group together with the minerals quartz or calcite and compresses.
Sandstone was a popular building material from ancient times. It is relatively soft, making it easy to carve. It has been widely used around the world in constructing temples, homes, and other buildings. It has also been used for artistic purposes to create ornamental fountains and statues.
Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized mineral particles or rock fragments. Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar because they are the most resistant minerals to weathering processes at the Earth’s surface, as seen in the Goldich dissolution series.
Teak Sandstone – Teak Stone and Teakwood Sandstone. Teak, more popularly known as Khatu Teak is fine-grained, cream-ish in color. The brown veins throughout the surface reflect a wooden finish and hence named as teakwood sandstone. The teak sandstone is available only in tiles form in sawn surface finish
India is among the leading countries when it comes to mining and export of sandstone. The best part with Sandstone from India is that it is available in different colors and considered best for interior as well as exterior use.

Limestone is a carbonate sedimentary rock that is often composed of the skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral, foraminifera, and mollusks. Its major materials are the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate.

It is an excellent building stone for Pathways, Corridors, Driveways, Commercial buildings. It is also used in chemical industries due to its resistant properties
Red Sandstone is also referred to as Agra Red Sandstone. It is available in different sizes and varied thicknesses. The Red Sandstone becomes more appealing due to the Colour, Easy maintenance and high durability and comes at competitive market prices as well. Agra Red Sandstone is generally used for the external wall Cladding.
Marble and Sandstone
Sandstone is a sedimentary rock that forms from cemented sand-sized clasts. It forms when sand layers are buried under sediments of sand. The hardness of sandstone is 6-7 and it is heat resistant, impact resistant and pressure resistant. Marble is a metamorphic rock produced from limestone in the earth crust The specific heat capacity of Marble is 0.88 kJ/Kg K and that of Sandstone is 0.92 kJ/Kg K. Depending on the properties like hardness, toughness, specific heat capacity, porosity, etc., rocks are resistant to heat, wear, impact, etc. Marble is heat resistant whereas Sandstone is heat resistant.
Marble is considered to be a strong, hard stone, even though its primary mineral, calcite, only has a Mohs hardness of 3. Marble can be scratched with a metal blade
