Sedimentary Rocks and the Rock Cycle

2020-8-26 · Sandstone Sandstone rocks are composed almost entirely of sand-sized quartz grains (0.063 –2 mm) cemented together through lithification. Sandstone rocks are generally classified as quartz sandstone, arkose (quartz with feldspars), or graywacke (quartz with feldspar, clay, and other coarse-grained mineral fragments).
