Birds Eye Rhyolite refers to some spherulitic rhyolites. Rhyolite was named "streaming rock" because of its beautiful bands, bubbles and crystal-rich layers that form as lava flows onto the surface of stone and moves forward. Rhyolite can look very different, depending on how it erupts. Rhyolite has a composition similar to granite but has a smaller grain size. It is composed of the light-colored silicates and is usually buff to pink in color. Because of its varied formational traits it represents change, variety and progress. Mined in Mexico. Also known as Brown Rhyolite.
