Icelandic Pillow lava is basalt and it is rough, mostly cubic, sharp volcanic rock with angular grains and closely set voids.
From ancient rock to a modern product
Icelandic Basalt is a product from recent volcanic resources providing unique benefits for today’s technologies. It is used as a component in various products – and in a variety of applications, as fibers, powders, solids, and also in its natural state.
Icelandic Lava - Volcanic Rock
Icelandic Pillow Lava forms in under water volcanic eruptions, with a basaltic composition and forms a pillow shape texture. The size of individual pillows varies from 10 cm up to several meters. The Eden Pillow Lava is uniquely suitable for insulation, filtering, fillers and sealers and as granular sand or potting soil, or as a binder for structural foundations because of its generic stackability. The Pillow Lava grains size can be customized for buyers.
Iceland - a volcanic reserve
Iceland sits on the border of the Mid-Atlantic tectonic plates. Recent eruptions aside, the rock is relatively young in geological terms dating back 800,000 years.
