MINERALOGY: Rhyolite is a volcanic rock. It is composed mainly of quartz, feldspar and sphalerite sphalerite their gaseous cavities were filled with silica precipitates giving rise to this cavity. As healing stones or collectibles are used rhyolite green chalcedony with inclusions (orbicular jasper) or rhyolite, sandstone-colored glass inclusions (Jasper Leopard) .You can file a flow structure, which gives it a banded appearance. These rocks have bands that formed when in short distances from the lava after the eruption that took her to the surface.
MYTHOLOGY: A mineral associated with rhyolite is the ocean orbicular jasper, an igneous rock similar to granite, for this reason it is also called ocean jasper, petrified or rhyolite. The highest concentration of rhyolite is in New Zealand. There are some rich in sulfur springs are the remains of a major eruption. It spreads through the air a cloud of gas that threw lava whole area. Hardened lava forming rhyolite. Also pumice (or pumice) is a rhyolitic glass, rhyolite is the volcanic equivalent of granite.
PROPERTIES: It is said that the orbicularis rhyolite is a stone of renewal and strength, frees us from the alteration and obsession balancing those parts of life that have become too important at the expense of others, the orbicular rhyolite with its soft power helps bring to the surface the unresolved emotional issues, it helps to face the future in a positive spirit.
