Sandstone, also known as arenite, is a sedimentary rock that’s predominantly made up of sand minerals and rock grains. Sandstone also tends to be composed of quartz and/or feldspar – these are the most common sand-sized minerals to be found in the earth’s crust and are therefore common to see in many forms of natural stone.
Just like sand, sandstone can form into all different colours and shades, making them an excellent option when it comes to interior design. However, the most common colours are yellow, tan, brown, pink, grey, red, white and black. As sandstone is found all over the world, different climates can cause the rock to form in different shapes and colours. This causes many kinds of unique sandstone to be associated with specific regions, forming almost their own brand of sandstone.
