Nice specimen, seems water worn (perhaps brought/dumped by some stream entering the lake. From appearance the specimen seems hard. However from the pics. I am sorry, its not possible to identify. You
Plate Tectonics is not the final answer to all of our queries. It conveniently explains many observed phenomena about seismicity, magmatic activity, continental configuration, bathymetric geomorphology
I guess the pores in pumice are not interconnected as a result the trapped air inside decreases the density of the rock, while the pores in scoria are interconnected so that the trapped air escapes on
Mud cracks are formed by more or less similar process of formation of columnar joints. During desiccation cooling centres are formed which are surrounded by tensional joints, The intersection of adjoining
All iron deposits that you see are in face do not have iron as element but are huge deposits of common iron minerals hematite and magnetite and to some extent of goethite. These minerals are formed
