Indian Sandstone Colours: Quick Guide

As an entirely natural product, Indian Sandstone is formed over thousands of years from mineral deposits that are bound together by pressure over these long periods of time. As a result of the differing mineral content, sandstone is available in a wide range of colours, all with their own unique variations! The charm of Indian Sandstone Paving is that each slab is unique, providing your space with natural character and appeal that makes the stone such a popular option of garden paving.

Options range from earthy hues to striking multicoloured slabs and even more subtle and neutral cream, ivory and grey tones.

With such a wide range to choose from, it can be tricky to know which option is best for your project, so we’ve put together this quick guide to give you an overview of what you can expect from each type of stone!

Autumn Brown Sandstone offers a medley of earthy tones, predominantly featuring browns, buffs and greys. The Indian stone is a very popular choice for any rural patio or garden path and is easy to lay, with the warm tones blending seamlessly into any traditional setting. Each slab features a riven surface texture, created naturally when the stone is split along its layers, providing a truly authentic finish to add to the natural, organic look and feel of riven sandstone paving.

The fossil detailing displayed within the occasional slab is a unique feature of Fossil Mint Sandstone and offers a little extra to the natural aesthetic when compared to other options of sandstone paving and the stone is available in 600×900 slabs or a mixed-size Patio Kit with a naturally riven surface texture.
