Olivine Volcanic Bomb | Lava Coated Crystal | 53 gr | Mortlake, Victoria, Australia SO24

An olivine volcanic bomb is a type of volcanic rock that contains olivine crystals and has been ejected during a volcanic eruption. Olivine is a mineral that is commonly found in the Earth's mantle and is one of the first minerals to crystallize as magma cools.

Volcanic bombs are large clots of lava that are ejected from a volcano during an explosive eruption. They can vary in size, and their shapes are often streamlined due to their molten nature as they are thrown through the air. When these volcanic bombs contain olivine crystals, they are referred to as olivine volcanic bombs.

This piece has been cut to show the green olivine crystals which are showcased beautifully against the surrounding black lava crust.  

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.
