Home Reef Pumice Rafts -

Tonga to Vanuatu Dec, 2006

These are floating rafts of pumice rock, spotted at Shark Bay on Tanna Island, Vanuatu. They originated over 1600 kilometers away at the site of a volcanic eruption at Home Reef near Tonga. The pumice is light and porous so it can actually float on water for incredible distances. The eruption that ejected this pumice has supposedly created a brand new island.
