Reticulite is an extremely vesiculated variety of pumice that develops from high volcanic fiery fountains that are ejected into the air during an eruption. Reticulite travels higher than pumice and consists of a threaded, almost weaved network of glass threads spun together at multiple points, forming a polyhedral type lattice. It does not float like pumice, however, because it's structure is so open that it causes the latticework to fill up and sink.

The words reticulated habit, in geology, means a network of slender crystals held at a point. The incredible and intricate structure of reticulite and the manner in which it is formed makes it one of the most interesting rocks in the world. Small but mighty, this curiosity of nature makes a great addition to a scientific collection.

Size of specimen: 38mm L X 28mm W X 10mm D; Ships in a protective case with Certificate of Authenticity, information, mineral tack, tag and tag stand. Photo cube, acrylic and plastic risers not included.
