The pores are linear and so fine as often to be barely visible except by means of a magnifying glass. Its specific gravity is 3.9 to 3.4 —water being the unit—but by reason of its spongy texture pieces are often buoyant enough to float on •water. It consists chiefly of silica, with sometimes 17 per cent of lumina, 6 per cent of soda and 4 per cent of potash. It is of grayish (wades of color, passing into yellow and brown, The chief source from which it is obtained for commercial purposes is Campo Bianco, one of the Lipnri islands, where it forma a hill nearly 1,000 feet high. In the arts pumice is largely employed, mostly in a pulverized state, as a polishing material for ivory, wood, glass, marbles, etc, It is also used in lump for grinding and smoothing metalUo surfaces, leather, etc., and in the preparatipn of parcft< ments, etc. Quantities of the pulverized pumice are used in making fancy BQaps,—?
