Volcanoes, volcanic Islands, volcanic rock beaches and soft black powdery sand from ground up volcanic rocks through the ages. Many places we have visited in the past 9 months have had origins leading back to volcanic activity in its history.
But especially when we were in the Atlantic Islands, which all exist due to volcanic activity, everywhere I turned I was reminded that they are still alive and active.
One by-product of this is the jewelry that has developed by the locals from the different types and densities of the rock.
The photos show some of my choices as well as some I photographed in shops.
