    Pumice Specimen location: Tywardreath. Natural highly vesicular, hyaline pumice has been imported into the United Kingdom as an aggregate for use in low strength thermal insulation blocks. It is probably from the Lipari Islands. Concrete made with this aggregate is found occasionally throughout the region in non-loading bearing internal walls. Pumice is exported from the islands, and the principal agricultural product is a heavy malmsey-type wine from Lipari. There are alum quarries on the volcano. Lipari, the chief town of the islands is the seat of a bishop and of the important Aeolian archaeological museum; much of the remaining population concentrated in the three town on Lipari.
