Sandstones form in a variety of ways. Arizona sandstones are extremely common rocks that are accumulated in either water originally, usually marine, or as windblown deposits in arid continental areas. Red , yellow, buff, and brown sandstones form as continental deposits in shallow marine environments where iron may be oxidized. Sandstone formed in lucustrine environments often exhibits cross bedding formed in deltas. Millet-seed sandstone forms in arid environments. The quartz sand grains are rounded by the wind. Large-scale dune bedding may indicate continental deposition. Sandstones that are not usually found in Arizona include a number of less common varieties.
