A small fragment of andesite that is flat on the bottom and rounded on top. The rock is a pinkish colour with flecks of white and black rock. It has a glittery appearance.
Andesite are a volcanic rock with a bubbly texture and have plenty of crystals in them. Mount Taranaki is made up of Andesite and is one of the perfect examples of an andesite cone. Some of the Andesite around Taranaki contains olivine, feldspar, squat augite and bladed hornblende.
