Red Sandstone is a naturally-occurring block, found 4-5 blocks below natural red sand deposits, but only in Mesa biomes.

Red Sandstone will not generate beneath red sand, as orange terracotta does this instead.

Generated Structures will also comprise normal sandstone if generated in a desert. desert wells will comprise of normal sandstone; villages in the desert will comprise of cut, smooth, and normal sandstone; and desert temples will comprise of normal, cut, and chiseled sandstone. No naturally generated structures are made entirely of red sandstone.

Crafting

Both regular and red sandstone can be crafted using four blocks of sand or red sand in the 2x2 crafting area. Cut Sandstone of both variants can be crafted as well using 4 Sandstone of either variant. Chiseled Sandstone can be crafted using sandstone slabs of either variant.

Both smooth sandstone variants can be smelted into their respective sand variants.

Wandering Traders sell four red sandstone for one emerald.
