    Four types of Hawaiian Lava

    These are the four types of Hawaiian lava. A'A; Dense Basalt; Abrader stone and Pahoehoe lava. The descriptions are with the photos.
    The trail that was used to take these types of lava to market is the 5th photo and is the thousands of years old King's Road that runs from North to South on the Big Island of Kona. The rarest of all lava comes from the top of Mauna Kea where the most dense of all stones the dense Basalt alva erupted and cooled through a glacial cap at the top of the mountain. The natives had to climb to 14,000 feet to obtain it and then move it to trade areas, and fight along the way to keep it.
    LIfe was not as simple back then as one might think.
    Everything has a price.
