Origin of the Red color in Sandstone
Red sandstone is found in quarries of Rajasthan and the red color comes because of the light-colored quartz sandstone. Arid environments or ephemeral rivers carry these sandstone deposits which were exposed for millennia to weathering and atmospheric oxygen, like the sandy deserts.
Over time, the small quantities of iron-rich minerals in the sand break down and the iron is oxidized into hematite crystals (Fe2O3) forming a thin paint-like coating on the quartz sand grains. The hematite crystals absorb all light colors except red which they reflect, giving the sandstones their red color. Let’s see some of these red rocks and their applications.
