This 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, 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.
In crystal healing rhyolite is said to provide protection, strength and spiritual contact.
