This is carved Vesuvian igneous rock. Vesuvian lava rock is spewed forth during an eruption of the Vesuvius volcano. It is calcified lava, a lump or mass aggregate of hard consolidated mineral matter. It is a lapilli of felsic pyroclastic such as felsic volcanic tuff or felsic vesicular pumice. Igneous rocks are rocks which solidify from molten material (magma). Felsic compositions are rich in silica (SiO2). Vesicular texture is formed when lava solidifies before gases are able to escape. This is not marble, plaster, plastic, petrified wood, jade, marshmallow, white chocolate, or any type of semi-precious stone.
