Resources of our country is very rich in pumice. The north of Heilongjiang, Hai nan Island, south of volcanic pumice areal distribution of mineral resources has, to the northern territories, the quality is better, eruption age of newer, prolific in the coastal areas. Water, pumice, commonly known as cellular stone, Jiang Mo stone, pumice, produced in Jilin Province, near the southeastern Tianchi. The stone Duocheng white, gray, white, yellow and other colors, porous and light, can float on the water.

Pumice basically is an extremely vesicular pyroclastic igneous rock of transitional to siliceous magmas which comprise of rhyolite, trachyte and phonolite. It is generally light in colour varying from white, yellowish, grey, grey brown and at times dull red.
Pumice is found extensively in the Pacific Ocean. It has a standard porosity of nearly 90 per cent. Pumice is usually created as pyroclastic material which is released in the air as froth comprising of heaps of gas bubbles or vesicles, the lava freeze rapidly and the vesicles are enclosed in the rock.
Pumise is assumed to be a glass because it comprises no crystal structure and usually differs in density on the basis of the thickness of the solid matter amid the bubbles, a number of sections float in water.
In the pacific duh!!!!
And, I'm 11!
