Chemical Properties of Sandstone

Chemically they are very resistant Mono-Mineralic rocks, principally composed of silica. The other minor constituents vary from origin to origin.

Silica (SiO2)95-97%
Fe2O30.5-1.50% (varies with variety)
Alumina (Al2O3)1 to 1.5%
Soda (Na2O) & Potash (Kro)Less then 1%
Lime (CaO)Less then 0.5%
Magnesia (MgO)Less then 0.5%
Loss On Ignition (LOI)Less then 0.5%
