Note: Scoria is a mineral that is quarried only in extinct volcanoes in the southern Victorian area. It is composed of a complex range of different compounds and minerals with a structure that is highly vesicular. It this looks like a rock sponge. The lightest and best of this material is mined in the Anakie area to the south west of Melbourne at two quarries owned by the Aerolite group.
