If the content of volatile components (water, carbon dioxide) is higher arises pumice, because the gases as a blowing agent to work. The formation of volcanic glass is highly dependent on the viscosity of the liquid lava and this is in turn strongly influenced by the content of silicic acid. The higher the level, the slower the flowing liquid. Most obsidianen have a silica content of 70% or more and are therefore included in the ryolieten.
