Conwy Rhyolite outcrop
Conwy Rhyolite outcrop
The rocky summit of Craigyfedwen comprises an outcrop of the Conwy Rhyolite, a volcanic rock rich in silica which was erupted around 450 million years ago. Violent eruptions created great thicknesses of hot, glassy fragments which can be detected as a characteristic, rubbly texture in these rocks.
