Sandstone

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock formed from debris deposited of silica granules by wind or water and consolidated with amorphous silica or calcium carbonate cementing matrix, often in conjunction with aluminum or iron oxide, which contributes yellow, orange or brown colouration.

Limestone

Around five million years ago (in the Pliocene) this shallow sea became land and the vast sandbanks of broken fragments of marine animals compacted to form rock known as limestone.

Quartzite

Quartzite is a naturally occuring stone formed from sandstone. Heat and pressure bonds the sandstone and quartz grains together very tightly to form quartzite, giving it a natural stone look with a high concentration of fine shiny metallic quartz grains, these particles go right through the quartzite stone giving it an intricate and beautiful natural metallic design. The quartz in quartzite is so hard that it can even scratch steel. The Quartzite stone is amongst the hardest and most resistant of all natural rocks.
