Lets see your cool lavas. I have a passion for Lava, so I thought I'd post some photos of some of the cool ones I've collected.

Here is an Obsidian piece from the edge of a flow.

I like it too. It's a relic of an elemental earth force, with seemingly infinite variety of form. Real nice specimens you have there :wub:

It counts, lets see it......That reminds me, recently a dam was taken out that was up river from me, and now I've seen a couple pieces floating down river.

Hello everyone.

''Leaves in lava...'' . It sounds superb. But could it be???

A long ago I've found in my area my first plant material. It was two rocks containing leave layers mainly of platanus sp. The first rock is of a normal color, as shown in the pic 1. The second rock bears the colors of a burning like appearance and I didn't respect it since the leaves it contains are not in a good condition. Thanks to bdevey's idea about lava, this second rock came on mind and so I present two pieces of it: the first in the pics 2-5 and the second in the pics 6-10.

I clarify that there is not any additional material (luster or anything) on these pieces.

Am I into the topic???

If not, sorry for the trouble.

Best regards

Astrinos

Hi Astrinos ... another HOT topic ?? :P

I'm with Lordpiney and definitely have no idea if that specimen is lava? :blink:

Organic material is not implausible if the igneous strata is redeposited. B)
