Sandstone is an item that can only be mined from sandstone rocks at the Western desert mining site (Quarry) south of the Bandit Camp in the Kharidian Desert. In the quarry, as in the desert, desert heat will continually reduce the player's Hitpoints unless the player has waterskins in the inventory or wears the Desert amulet 4.

Sandstone respawns quickly, so a player can mine continuously at a group of only 3-4 rocks. Thus, it can be quickly mined for fast XP. When sandstone is mined, the player randomly receives one of the four sizes of sandstone blocks.

Sandstone is used in the quest Enakhra's Lament to make part of Lazim's statue: 32kg for the base, and 20kg for the body.

Un-noted sandstone can be converted into buckets of sand using the Sandstorm grinder, found west of the Quarry. The amount of sand produced per sandstone varies, though it is more efficient (and time consuming) to grind smaller blocks of sandstone. This comes at the cost of 50gp per bucket of sand produced, and the player is required to supply their own (noted or un-noted) buckets.

A player must have a Mining level of 35 or greater to mine sandstone, which yields the following experience depending on the size the sandstone block mined:
