Sandstone is a sedimentary rock formed by the compaction of fine-grained silica. The geology community widely recognizes this definition, which we read in all geology textbooks. For those specializing in Geology with Petrology, it is the first rock they study in detail. It is an essential rock for exploration missions on other planets and terrestrial bodies because it can provide evidence of the existence of water in ancient riverbeds. Sandstone also offers valuable information about the age of sedimentary rocks on our planet. As experts in the natural stone industry, we sincerely appreciate this natural stone. It is one of nature’s most majestic creations, seamlessly connecting art and architecture through civilizations until today.

In India, we quarry classic sandstone extensively in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh states. The Indian sandstone, along with its peers quarried in other parts of the world, contributes to the beautification of several projects, both commercial and residential. Whether used for flooring, cladding, or paving, it is a versatile material prized for its natural beauty and durability.

The construction industry and the natural stone trade categorize sedimentary rocks with fine silica grains as sandstone. Although geologists may classify these rocks differently, what matters to the industry is that the materials function as sandstone. You can view samples of some of the popular varieties of this rock type from India here.
