Siltstone formation took place millions of years ago. There are a variety of Siltstone Uses and the Siltstone Reserves are found in many countries around the world.

- Siltstone is a type of sedimentary rock which is formed from fine rock particles. As the particles of eroded rock travel along with water, the edges of the rock are worn-out by water into a rounded shape.
