What is Pumice? Pumice is a textural rock and not a rock that is classified by mineralogy or chemistry. It is basically the solidified foam that forms from a lava rich in volatiles or gases. When the molten rock is effervescing to the point of forming a froth and then solidifies, pumice is the result. Pumice has numerous open spaces or vesicles in the form of round bubbles, linear tubes or irregular cavities. There is so much porosity in pumice that there is often more empty space than actual rock and in fact some pumice can float on water.
There are many uses for pumice as it is light weight, relatively hard and can have very sharp edges. It is used in the cosmetics industry as an exfoliating pad, scouring stones and as an additive in creams and lotions. Pumice's hardness makes it useful as an abrasive and its light weight gives it an advantage for use as large decorative rocks for landscaping. Its porous nature makes it a natural for filters.
Use on rough patches of skin on hands and feet.
