Quartzite: Metamorphic Rock Pictures, Definition & More

The transition of sandstone into quartzite is a gradual process. A single rock unit such as the Tuscarora Sandstone might fully fit the definition of quartzite in some parts of its extent and be better called "sandstone" in other areas. Between these areas, the names "quartzite" and "sandstone" are used inconsistently and often guided by habit.

Building with stone : Sandstone (Part I) Stone Specialist

Jul 16, 2013· Sandstone should not be face-bedded as whole surfaces may delaminate, and if it is laid vertically on edge it can suffer rapid and uneven denudation. It is this property of sandstones that means some are only used either for paving or relatively short masonry units. Many sandstone buildings use blocks rarely greater than 400mm in height.

Sandstone Wikipedia

Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized (0.0625 to 2 mm) silicate grains. Sandstones make up about 20 to 25 percent of all sedimentary rocks. Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar (both silicates) because they are the most resistant minerals to weathering processes at the Earth's surface, as seen in the Goldich dissolution series.
