Rhyolite is a volcanic rock. It is sometimes known as Rainforest Jasper. Its occurrence is quite widespread throughout the world. Pre-historic quarries of rhyolite have been discovered in the location of east Pennsylvania, USA. Rhyolite was given it’s name by the German traveller and geologist Ferdinand von Richthofen after his explorations in the Rocky Mountains in the 1860s.

Rhyolite is supposed to spark creativity in individuals who are ready to move forward and make things happen in their life. It apparently helps to break through the mental barriers. This stone is used for meditation, progression in life, focusing on the present moment and resolving issues not yet complete.
