Monday Geology Picture: Sandstone Building Stone

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Gorgeous sandstone building stones.

I’m currently on the east coast of Australia, where local sandstone is commonly used as a building stone. Above is a picture that I took this morning. This picture shows some beautiful building stones on display at the University of Newcastle. The cross-bedding and variable coloration of the sandstone layers is just gorgeous. What a lovely building stone!
