The porosity of sandstone is on the higher side and makes it a natural aquifers and petrol reservoir. It is the natural ability of the stone to allow large quantities of percolation. Sandstone is a fine grained aquifer that effectively filters out other impurities while naturally collecting petrol and other Our Books.

It is amazing to know that sandstone has been the most preferred material for construction since almost prehistoric times. The Indian sandstone is relatively soft and because of this quality it becomes easier to carve sandstone. Besides being popular building/constructional material, sandstone that has a relatively lower rate of weathering is also used for constructing fountains, pavements and many more. Sandstone slabs, fountains, statues, chisels, beverage coasters, doorways are some more things that are sandstone based. Sandstones can be found as ‘arenites’ and ‘wackes’. Arenites are texturally clean and wackes are texturally dirty. The texture clarity comes into existence owing to the interstitial pore size of the stone. Greater the pore size lesser the clarity and vice-versa.

Because natural Indian sandstone is very hard it becomes ideal to be used as building material. Sandstone owes its strength to the consolidation of sand particles over many years through a natural cementing substance ‘Silica’.

Sandstone is the youngest of the stones belonging to the quartz family, but interestingly it is oft used building material.
