Sandstone is a sedimentary rock (rock formed by ancient rivers that slowly deposited material on their beds, that built up layer by layer over millions of years). It has the following properties:
It is abrasion resistant, but not always strong, as it is formed in layers.
It is usually highly resistant to acids
It has a rough finish, and cannot be mirror-polished, as it consists of grains
These properties mean that it is good for decks and external areas because of its anti-slip properties. Since sandstone looks and feels very different from granite and marble, it has become fashionable to use these in boutique stores.
