Sandstone, it is a stationary rock composition created, mainly by as small as sand sized mineral particle or rock chunk. Many of the sandstones are composited by quartz or feldspar as they are most of common minerals in the Earth’s crust. As well as sand, sandstone is available in many colors, but most often used colors are, red, tan brown, gray, yellow, white pink, and black. Mostly sandstone is used because this is economically cheaper but gives a fantabulous look as natural stone for building and other commercial or artistic purposes.
