    Pumice and pumicite are used both as structural lightweight aggregates and as ultralightweight aggregates. They are lighter colored, of lower density, and more highly cellular than are scoria and cinder. Composition ranges from high-silica (rhyolitic) to low-silica (basaltic), but most pumices are in . The main use for pumice is as an aggregate in lightweight building blocks and assorted building products. The other major applications for pumice and pumicite include abrasive, absorbent, concrete aggregate and admixture, filter aid, horticultural (including landscaping), and the stonewashing of ibe to receive an email notification when a publication is added to.
