Rhyolite Meaning – General Information.

Rhyolite is an igneous silica-rich volcanic rock with a similar chemical composition to granite. It occurs in combinations of various colours, with the predominant colours being green, yellow, caramel, orange-tan and brown. And also depending on its source, it may contain a combination of Quartz, Feldspar, and Nepholite.

Rhyolite gets its name from the Greek – rhyo and rhuax, denoting a stream of lava. It belongs in the Trigonal crystal system, with an anhedral structure and a varying Mohs hardness between 7 and 9. It can look very different, depending on how it erupts. Rhyolite is also called “streaming rock” because as its lava flows it creates beautiful bands, bubbles and crystal-rich layers. The variety from Australia is also referred to as Rainforest Jasper and Rainforest Rhyolite.

Rhyolite Meaning – History.
