Sandstone commonly consists of sand sized grains of quartz, feldspar, and other minerals. It may also include organic matter or rock fragments. The minerals that cement the grains include quartz, pyrite, or calcite. The colour of sandstone ranges from cream, grey, red, brown to green, depending on the cements and impurities in the sand. Brownstone, reddish-brown sandstone, was once widely used to build houses.
It is typically used as flooring or paving materials. Most sandstones are suitable for both interior and exterior applications.
Our sandstone is sourced from our own local quarries in the Donegal Gaeltacht in north west Donegal. It is cut and dressed at our manufacturing plant in the village of Crolly and delivered and fit by our expert staff.
