Scoria: Igneous Rock - Pictures, Definition & More

Scoria is a dark-colored igneous rock with abundant round bubble-like cavities known as vesicles. It ranges in color from black or dark gray to deep reddish brown. Scoria usually has a composition similar to basalt, but it can also have a composition similar to andesite.Aggregate Concrete at Best Price in India,Besides producing ready-mixed concrete, RMC-India also ventured in to Aggregates Quarrying and Processing business. With a modest beginning made in October 2000, the Company has established a total of seven aggregate crushing and processing facilities till date.Harmful Materials in Scoria Lightweight Aggregates, Harrat,,materials passing sieve No 200 should not exceed 1% and 3% for the coarse and fine aggregate.

Scoria vs Basalt - Compare Nature

Scoria is available in black, brown, dark grey to black, red colors whereas, Basalt is available in black, brown, light to dark grey colors. Appearance of Scoria is Glassy and Vesicular and that of Basalt is Dull and Soft. Properties of rock is another aspect for Scoria vs Basalt. The hardness of Scoria is 5-6 and that of Basalt is 6.How is Scoria an extrusive rock if it has a coarse grain,,Scoria is actually glassy, mostly.
