Bluestone is a natural stone. It is a blue-gray sandstone, consisting of a mixture of sand compound and quartz particles. Bluestone has been quarried in the USA since the early 1900’s, particularly in the regions of New York and Pennsylvania.
The word bluestone was originated from the building and trade industries to describe and refer to the popular stone. It does however have a technical term. Bluestone’s geological term is, ‘feldspathic sandstone’, meaning finely-grained arkosic sandstone. (Via Paversearch)
