Pele's hair, which is also known as Pele's tears, is one of the most interesting types of byproducts created by a volcanic eruption. These strands of stretched glass were gathered at the Pu'u Huluhulu crater, south of the Kilauea volcano, Hawaii.

The name comes from the shape, as these fiberous strands resemble hair and can also be tear shaped. The photo in 5X magnification shows the diversity of material that can be found in these specimens.

Ships with disk, tag, tag stand and description. Size of disk: 1 3/4" diameter by 1/2".

This material could have been cast from either the Pu'u Huluhulu crater or the Kilauea volcano, since they are in close proximity.

The fragile nature of this rare geological volcanic material makes it a great addition to any geological collection.
