Volcanic ash consists of small tephra, which are fragments of pulverized rock and glass originating from volcanic eruptions, with a diameter of less than 2 millimeters (0.1 inches). The ash is created when the usually violent nature of an eruption that produces magma and steam, involves the solid rock that surrounds the mouth of the volcano, which is torn into particles of clay and sand.
