Do you know Sandstone?

Sandstone forms from beach sand-sized quartz grains that are glued together with quartz or calcite or compressed until they harden into a rock. Sandstone has a medium-grained texture and is often associated with water and oil storage because it has open spaces between the quartz grains.

Visit Mini Me Geology where you can find sandstone as an individual sample as well as a part of our My Rockin Collection Deluxe Sedimentary Rock Kit, our Junior Sedimentary Rock kit, and in our Sedimentary Sleuthing Rock Detectives kit.
