Subsurface Berea Sandstone deposition corresponded to regional exposure and erosion in the outcrop belt. This unconformable surface was overstepped in earliest Mississippian time by a major transgression that deposited a variably thick but persistent basal transgressive sandstone during shoreface retreat.

Berea Sandstone

2019-8-28 · The Berea is fine-grained, but the grains are angular rather than rounded, which makes this stone ideal as an abrasive. It has been quarried in many areas as a building stone and was used for foundations, sidewalks, bridge abutments, and for buildings. Many large pubic and private buildings were constructed of Berea Sandstone.

its Devonian rock layers. A rock unit called Berea Sandstone is famous for three things. First, the small spaces between the sand grains can hold oil. The Berea was one of Ohio''s first major oil-producing layers. By 1886, over 2,000 wells had been drilled into the Berea in eastern Ohio. Second, the Berea was perfect for making grindstones.
