    Pumice is a unique rock, noted for its light weight and low density (dry pumice can float in water). It is commonly used in cement, concrete and breeze blocks and as an abrasive in polishes, pencil erasers, exfoliants and to produce stone-washed jeans. Pumice is also used to remove dry skin from the bottom of the foot. Pumice is a term for a lightweight volcanic rock.. It is a solidified frothy lava, created when highly-heated, pressured molten rock is shot out from a light weight is due to air spaces, which are caused by fast cooling and loss of pressure. The loss of pressure makes bubbles by lowering the boiling point of the lava (like the bubble-creation when a carbonated drink is .

    Pumice and cinder are both volcanic rock. They form in a similar way and they look a lot alike. However, they are quite different in a number of ways, as well. Pumice. Pumice is a rock with a high content of silica, which tends to make it light in weight. It also has numerous air pockets throughout, making it even lighter. Journal of Geol Birman, J. H. ().

Commonly found across North America and known by a variety of different nicknames, from "lava rock" to "cinder stone," the two types of stones are formed when gas is trapped within lava as it cools – leading to a porous appearance.

Pumice PUMICES and LAPILLI are products of explosive volcanic eruptions formed following a violent expansion of the gases dissolved in lavas with an acid chemical composition.

The rapid cooling of the rock has prevented the crystallization of the same, trapping internally the gases and generating more or less expanded beehive minerals.

Read on as we discuss the good, the bad and the ugly about safely removing your calluses. Pumice stones are safe because they aren't sharp. MYTH. Don't fool yourself!

Even though they aren't sharp I have actually had patients cause a sore from over pumicing. Float the piece of pumice rock in the jug and note down the new water level (in mL) - this is amount B. Because the pumice is now floating, the difference between A and B gives you the amount of water displaced by the pumice and therefore, knowing that the density of water is 1kg/L, the mass of the pumice.
