Pagoda Rock

Pagoda rock is a clastic sedimentary stone mostly consisting of quartz minerals and iron oxidized clay. This rock is a type of Sandstone that has a significantly unique formation. Like most quartz-dominant arenite rocks, This stone is made up of mostly silica minerals (sand) and a small percentage of clay/mud cementing it together. One noticeable difference between Pagoda Stones and other types of Sandstones is the staggered formation of layered bedding.
