Sandstone

         Sandstone: Sandstone rocks are sedimentary rocks made from small grains of the minerals quartz and feldspar. They often form in layers as seen in this picture. They are often used as building stones.

For thousands, even millions of years, little pieces of our earth have been eroded-broken down and worn away by wind and water.

These little bits of our earth are washed downstream where they settle to the bottom of the rivers, lakes, and oceans. Layer after layer of eroded earth is deposited on top of each.

These layers are pressed down more and more through time, until the bottom layers slowly turn into rock.

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock group which is mostly made up of tiny grains of quartz. Most sandstone is formed in oceans, lakes and rivers where tiny bits of rock and dirt settle to the bottom. Year after year, these layers of sand get buried under tons of more sand and dirt until it is turned into solid rock. Sandstone can be found in many colors.

Uses of Sandstone

•Manufacturing of plate glass, fine table glassware, and common glassware.
•Crushed in concrete and asphalt to fill in dike and jetty construction.
•Rough and weathered sandstone is used as fireplaces, walls, and walkways.
•As decorative stones.
•As bookends, clocks, paperweights, coaster, etc.
•As flooring or paving material.
•Load bearing masonry
•Sandstone slabs and sandstone tiles are used in cladding.
•In chemical industries as flooring, wall fixing and lining due to its acid and alkali resistant properties.
•It is ideal for carving and architectural uses as pillars, arches, garden furniture, fountains, landscaping products and stone arts & crafts.
•Sandstone blocks are used as foundations and stonewalls.

Sandstone, limestone with shale/phyllite of Disang Group. Hard, massive and crystalised limestone is in contact with plagio-granite at bottom and volcanics at the top. Sandstone and building stone deposits/occurrences-Tsuuma, New Perern, Jakhama, Kohima, Yoruba, Pfutsero Lake, Mokochung, Botsa, Tuensang etc are the main areas where sandstone and other building stone materials are exposed. Possibilities of getting good sizes of block may be studied. All these deposits are mainly confined to Disang belt with Barail out lairs
