Monday Geology Picture: Weathered Sandstone at Cottage Point, Australia
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
Here’s another picture from my recent trip to Australia. This picture shows a weathered sandstone outcrop that I saw (by kayak!) at a place called Cottage Point. You can see fresh banded sandstone (light in color) underneath a darker weathering rim. Weathering has created some very interesting shapes in this outcrop!
There are quite a few sandstone rocks in the Sydney area. They are frequently used as building stones — for example, the ones I shared in an earlier post.
