Hi friends! This isn’t hair even though it looks like it. It is a rock. A rock called Pele’s hair. Still not actual hair though.
Who is Pele? Pele is a Hawaiian creator God and will be the subject of a future Mythology Monday! Pele’s hair is a volcanic rock and isn’t just found in Hawaii but wherever there are volcanos, like around Italy where it is called witches hair.
This special type of rock is formed when Lava melts basaltic glass. The super-heated rock can get flung up into the air by wind and lumps together. Then as it cools down it stretches out then cools down. As it is now long and stretched out it now has the golden colour. Don’t touch it! and especially don’t eat it.
It is very fragile and there is a high chance it will break. If you have ever broken glass and tried picking up all the little fragments and have them stick in your fingers for fucking days then you know the pain you will be in.
Hope you got value from this! Remember don’t eat anyone’s hair! If you liked this then please like and share it around and Pele will be happy
