Sandstone rocks are a type of rock found at the Desert Quarry south of the Bandit Camp in the Kharidian Desert and within the Worker District in Menaphos. While in the Desert Quarry, Desert heat will continually reduce the player's life points while in the quarry. Players are encouraged to bring waterskins, an Enchanted water tiara, or a Tome of frost with them to mitigate the heat. Alternatively, completing Crocodile Tears makes the player immune to the effects of desert heat completely.
Sandstone rocks respawn quickly; players 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. If wearing Varrock armour, stones mined by the double mining chance will be the same size.
Sandstone is tradeable and sold on the Grand Exchange. It is used to construct part of Lazim's statue during the Enakhra's Lament and to grind into extra fine sand (with a Crafting level of 20) to turn into blessed sand for crafting a blessed flask.
Players must have a Mining level of 35 or greater to mine sandstone, which yields the following experience on success based on the size of sandstone mined:
