Rock 365 : Day 13 : Vesicular Basalt #365photos

20100113

Day 13 : Vesicular basalt from Iceland.  I really like the surface textures and being full of small bubble holes it is very light.  I spent a fortnight driving around Iceland’s “ring road” so to be honest I can’t quite remember exactly where the sample originates, but is probably from near the Hekla volcano.
