Description and Application:
Genuine 100% natural bubbly red lava from its type source in Italy. Lightweight, in shades of terracotta and grey. This lava rock can be used to achieve a distinctive "scorched earth" appearance for set dressing and photographic work. As supplied Red Lava has a natural moisture content and up to 15% of sandy lava within the gravel.

This product is an ideal size to use as a planting medium for succulents and cacti. The grading of the lava provides for both good drainage and fine material to release plant nutrients. When washed the lava gravel can be used as a distinctive "arid" plant topping.

Being a natural product lava rock contains no harmful substances, it is inert with pH of around 8.0. Lava rock is resistant to frost and chemicals, and will not break down in water. It is also non-combustible and has good thermal insulation properties.

The lava's open honeycomb structure allows it to absorb moisture during periods of rainfall, but also allows the moisture to be released during dry spells.

Due to its colour and associated fine materials we would not recommend this lava in potpourri mixes. Red lava gravel is not suitable for pathways or drives.

Safety Information: This is a commercial / industrial product and not a toy.
