Sandstone is actually a sedimentary rock formed by the consolidation and compaction of sand, which is held together by a natural cement, such as silica. In fact, most sandstone is formed in oceans, lakes and rivers where tiny bits of rock and dirt settle to the bottom. After thousands of years, these layers of sand get buried under tons of more sand and dirt until it is turned into solid rock.
Natural sandstone is an extremely hard and tough material. Sandstone is typically the youngest of the quartz-based stones, with each stone having a different level of porosity, hardness and compressive strength.
Natural sandstone will compliment traditional or modern designs where the unique combinations of colour and texture add an ageless yet contemporary feel. Indian sandstone is suitable for domestic and commercial use. Owing to their natural beauty, sandstones are used for interior as well as exterior decoration including flooring, paving, wall cladding and walling.
