Rhyolite is also called Rainforest Rhyolite, Rainforest Jasper, Australian Rainforest Jasper. It is in fact a volcanic rock often patterned in colours of green, cream, brown and yellow. It comes from Mount Hay, Wycarbah, Rockhampton Region in Queensland, Australia.
Rhyolite is an extrusive igneous rock with a very high silica content. Rhyolite is made up of quartz, plagioclase, and sanidine, with minor amounts of hornblende and biotite. Trapped gases often produce vugs in the rock. These often contain crystals, opal, or glassy material. This Australian rhyolite may be metamorphic.
Rhyolite (Rainforest Jasper) is said to connect a person’s heart to Nature and a person’s impulse to planetary healing. We are one with nature, Rhyolite is said to call out. Rhyolite is said to open doorways to realms of natural power and wisdom. Rhyolite brings hope, renewal, invigoration and energy. It may be useful in ending grief or depression or other states occurring when one does not engage in life.
