Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed of grains of sand compressed together. Sandstone is resistant to weathering and durable, yet easy to work with. This makes sandstone a common building material. Sandstone can vary enormously in colour, texture and composition depending on the source material and the environment of deposition. Like sand, sandstone may be any colour but the most common colours are tan, brown, yellow, red, grey, pink and white. Certain colours of sandstone have been strongly identified with certain regions. Sandstone is most famous for its characteristic and can contain some of the materials found in granite. Sandstone continues to be a firm favourite with Coolestone customers throughout Ireland.
