'''Sandstone''' is a type of rock found in ''[[Metroid Prime]]''. In the real world, sandstone is a sedimentary rock consisting of quartz [[sand]] held together by an adhesive agent such as calcium carbonate or silica. While resistant to natural erosion, it can easily be destroyed by a [[Charge Beam]], [[Morph Ball]] [[Bomb]], or [[Power Bomb]]. It is found commonly in the [[Chozo Ruins]]. It is similar to [[Talloric Alloy]] found throughout the series.

The first vital need for destruction of Sandstone is used to access the door to [[Flaahgra]] in the Chozo Ruins.
