Red sandstone is the product of mining red sandstone rocks with Mining level 81. It can be made into robust glass by using the robust glass machine. To use the machine in Oo'glog, the As a First Resort quest needs to be completed; alternatively, if a player has access to Prifddinas, the Ithell Clan district houses a robust glass machine which can be used, however the same requirement still applies. Extra red sandstone can also be obtained from double ore chances granted by some items.
Mining the sandstone yields 70 experience per success. 50 red sandstone can be obtained from the Oo'glog red sandstone daily. The Oo'glog red sandstone is located north of the northern wall of the city, east of the Oo'glog lodestone. An additional 25 can be obtained daily from the Sophanem red sandstone, east of Sophanem and north of the Camel Warriors island, after completion of the elite Desert achievements. The daily limit will reset on login, after 00:00 (UTC). There is no limit to the amount of robust glass that can be created per day.
1200 red sandstone is required to create a blessed flask.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- According to Rutmir Arnhold, the walls of Oo'glog are composed of red sandstone, but the ogresses won't let anyone mine them for obvious reasons.
- Red sandstone alludes to the parallels Oo'glog has with the Australian outback, a remote, rural area in which the topsoil is red.
- On the day of release, red sandstone was tradeable. This was changed by an update to prevent an excessive influx and a decrease in prices for flasks.
- Unlike the animation for mining concentrated ore, which continues as if no ore was mined until the player's inventory is full or the deposit is emptied, the animation for red sandstone restarts after each successful attempt.
