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 life points unless the player has waterskins in the inventory, or is wearing an Enchanted water tiara.
Sandstone respawns quickly, so a player can mine continuously at a group of only 3-4 rocks. When sandstone is mined, the player randomly receives one of the four sizes of sandstone blocks. When wearing Varrock armour and the armour effect activates, the size of the second block of sandstone will be the same as the first block.
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:
