  • Scoria is a textural term for macro vesicular volcanic rock.
  • It is commonly, but not exclusively, basaltic or andesitic in composition.
  •  Scoria is light as a result of numerous macroscopic ellipsoidal vesicles, but most scoria has a specific gravity greater than 1, and sinks in water.
  • Scoria, the less silica-rich equivalent of pumice, are vesicular (bubbly) glassy volcanic rock fragments of basaltic to andesitic composition that are ejected during explosive eruptions.
  • Scoria is the common product of strombolian eruptions or lava fountains.
  • The bubbles are due to the escape of volcanic gases from the magma during the eruption when they are 'frozen' inside the glass.
  •  Scoria is typically dark gray to black in color, mostly due to its high iron content. Sometimes, oxidation (of iron) leads to a deep reddish-brown color.
  • Is a type of igneous rock formed under pressure during the formation of volcanic cones.
  • Scoria formed as lava exploded out of a volcano. 
  • Gas bubbles formed inside the lava, and were trapped as the lava cooled and hardened into rock.
  • Volcanic cones of scoria can be left behind after eruptions, usually forming mountains with a crater at the summit.
  • It is therefore extremely hard and durable yet very porous,
    so it drains water from surface soils extremely well.
  • Scoria cones (also called cinder or tephra cones) commonly occur in groups or fields, such as in Crater Flat.
  • Crater Flat is a relatively small cinder cone field; some contains hundreds of cones.
  • They can be used to reduce the finished weight of any concrete or masonry product by up to 30%.
  • They are ideal for specialty applications in the filter and refractory areas where our sand's light weight, excellent insulating and fire refractory properties give the product unique benefits.
