Description:
The Stone Rose is located in the upper Orotava valley on the Road to the Cañadas National Park. The rose is columnar jointing of a basaltic lava flow and 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. This lava flow originates from a monogenetic volcano at the head of the Orotava valley, the Montaña de Enmedio, dated as 30,000 years old.
