Minecraft resource gathering/Sandstone

A slab of Sandstone in real life. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock formed by weathering.


Sandstone is a block that can either be found in the desert or created by crafting. Sandstone is found 2-4 layers below the sand of a desert and on the frames of wells, desert temples and some desert village houses.


Sandstone is crafted by putting 4 sand in a square like how you would with a crafting table.

Unlike sand, sandstone does not fall in Minecraft, typically making it a better choice for permanent structures. Common techniques include using sandstone as the roof of a house.
