Volcanic Rock

Volcanic Rock
Copyright (2004) Robin Tzannes

Volcanic rock is not formed on Kythera, but is so light that it floats on water, and therefore can wash ashore from faraway places. This piece, found at Diakofty, is 6 cm long, and of a type known as ‘tuff’. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
