Sandstone rocks are a type of rock found in the Desert Quarry south of Bandit Camp as well as the Necropolis mine in the Kharidian Desert. These areas are subject to desert heat, so players mining here need waterskins, the circlet of water, or the Desert amulet 4 to avoid taking damage.

Sandstone respawns quickly, so a player can mine continuously at a group of only three to four rocks. When sandstone is mined, the player randomly receives one of the four sizes of sandstone blocks. When wearing Varrock armour 2 and the armour effect activates, the size of the second block of sandstone will be the same as the first block.

Sandstone is tradeable and can be sold on the Grand Exchange, but it is in very low demand. It is used in the quest Enakhra's Lament to make part of Lazim's statue and is used to generate buckets of sand at the Sandstorm.

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 shown in the table below.

Sandstone rocks cannot give gems, however clue geodes can be obtained.
