Stoneland uses different natural stones in projects and artifacts but we specialize in Sandstone.
Sandstone is a coarse-grained sedimentary rock formed by the consolidation and compaction of sand and held together by natural cement, such as silica. An extremely hard and tough material, it consists of consolidated masses of sand deposited by moving water or by wind. Largely the cementing material often determines the Colour of the rock, iron oxides causing red or reddish-brown sandstone, and the other materials producing white, yellowish, or grayish sandstone.

 
 

Chemical Composition
The chemical constitution of sandstone is the same as that of sand; the rock is thus composed essentially of quartz. The cementing material that binds together the grains of sand is usually composed of silica, calcium carbonate, or iron oxide.

Distinctive Features
Natural Sandstone is typically the youngest of the quartz-based stones, with each stone having a different level of porosity, hardness and compressive strength. The colours of the stone are very variable and vary from red, brown, greenish, yellow to grey and white. The texture of sandstone is noteworthy. It is medium-grained, with well-sorted grains of about the same size. The grains are usually sub angular to round.

Sandstones are suitable for domestic and commercial use. Owing to its natural beauty, sandstone is used for interior as well as exterior decoration. The architectural properties of natural sandstone make it a suitable medium to clad walls and floors and churn out an enamoring range of handcrafted artifacts such as garden ornaments, sculptures and other decorative items.

Sandstone reserves in India are estimated at around 1000 million tons and spread over the states of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Karnataka, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Tamilnadu and West Bengal. Over 90% of the deposits of sandstone are in Rajasthan, it’s the same region where Stoneland is situated.
