Sandstone is a coarse-grained sedimentary rock formed by the consolidation and compaction of sand and held together by a natural cement, such as silica, iron, lime etc. An extremely hard and tough material, it consists of consolidated masses of sand deposited by moving water or by wind & thus having different level of Porosity, hardness & compressive strength. Largely the cementing material often determines the color of the rock, iron oxides causing reddish-brown or red sandstone, and the other materials producing white, yellowish, or grayish, Orange and even purple & greenish colors. The bright and contrasting colors in sandstones are the attributes of Iron oxides, manganese oxides and other impurities present in it.
