Description:
Columnar jointing of a small post Roque Nublo, nepheline-basanite lava flow on the south western flank of the Barranco de Tirajana. The columnar jointing of a lava flow is formed as a lava flow cools and crystallizes into a coherent rock. As it begins to contract, shrinkage of the rock mass results in the development of numerous cracks, called joints. The rock is chemically a nephelinite, but contains microlites of plagioclase. Pyroxenite nodules are also to be found in this flow.
