Sandstone

Sandstone reserves in India are spread over the states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh,Over 90% of the deposits of sandstone are in Rajasthan, spread over the districts of Bharatpur, Dholpur, Kota, Jodhpur, Sawai-Madhopur, Bundi, Chittorgarh, Bikaner, Jhalawar, Pali, and Jaisalmer.

The sandstone from Kota Region is very similar to York Stone from England and thus it is very popular in England. Sandstone can be used both externally and for internal use.


Appearance

Sandstone has many colours ranging from white, grey and buff to various shades of pink and red. The colour and texture of stone is self evident, however the colour of dry stone can change quite dramatically on wetting. Natural weathering can play a major part in the change of colour. Such colour change can sometimes be viewed on abandoned faces of the quarry although it is much more important to view existing buildings constructed from the same stone.

Sandstones generally have an even texture, which may vary from course to fine, but the stone from some quarries also show attractive natural markings.

Applications

Many types of sandstone are suitable for paving or flooring. Some can be split ("riven") otherwise the normal finish is sawn. Tooled, sandblasted and flame textured finishes are also available. There is a vast variety of surface finishes available from the traditional rubble walling to wrought stonework with its finishes to different forms ie. boasting, pitched, broached, hammer dressed and rusticated, to the very intricate looking vermiculated. But most importantly, credit must go to the craftsmen who hue the sandstone to all the various forms from large stones with a high degree of moulding to the most intricate of carving work. Sandstones are suitable for blcok construction in most building and engineering work and can now be cut to relatively thin sections for cladding to steel framed or concrete structured buildings. All in all sandstone is one of the few historic natural minerals still in use today. It provides excellent durability and is virtually maintenance free. It is aesthetically appealing to the eye whilst giving great value for money to the client.
