Sandstone Cabochon (India) - These are beautiful as well as mesmerizing Sandstone Cabochons from India. Sandstone is basically sedimentary rock composed of grains of sand, which are then cemented together by either Quartz (silica), Calcite, Feldspar or clay. Colors range from white, cream, and tan to deep browns and reds (sometimes purples and pinks!). The presence of iron or manganese oxides creates the lovely reds, yellows and rusty-browns of some sandstones.
Because Sandstone is created by either wind or water, it is often called a stone of creativity. It strengthens relationships within groups, both at home and the workplace. Use Sandstone to keep you from getting distracted, especially during mediation. A cheerful stone, Sandstone keeps those annoying tantrums and mood swings under control. When used on the Sacral chakra, Sandstone can help you discern the truth among those around you and to keep your mind clear when making decisions.
Physically, Sandstone can help strengthen bones, nails and hair. It is also helpful with disorders of the eyes as well as water retention.
