It is typically light colored. Scoria is another vesicular volcanic rock that differs from pumice in having larger vesicles, thicker vesicle walls and being dark colored and denser. Pumice is created when super-heated, highly pressurized rock is violently ejected from a volcano. The unusual foamy configuration of pumice happens because of simultaneous rapid cooling and rapid depressurization. The depressurization creates bubbles by lowering the solubility of gases including water and CO 2 that are dissolved in the lava, causing the gases to rapidly exsolve like the bubbles of CO 2 that appear when a carbonated drink is opened. The simultaneous cooling and depressurization freezes the bubbles in a matrix.
Rocks have a reputation for being solid, hard, and indestructible. But rocks are always changing! Rocks undergo change as outlined in the rock cycle which is similar to the water cycle.
