Wave Rock is a natural rock formation located east of the small town of Hyden in Western Australia. The 'wave' formation was formed 60 million years ago and the shape of the rock is not caused by a wave phenomenon, rather its rounded wave-like shape was formed by subsurface chemical weathering followed by removal of the soft weathered granite by fluvial erosion, thus the weathering occurred below ground level before it was exposed.

Agates Agate is a microcrystalline variety of silica, chiefly Chalcedony, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although Agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks

Agate - This is a huge species of mineral types. It was first discovered in Italy. Most agates occur in volcanic rock or ancient lava formations. When cut, these agates form a succession of parallel lines, giving a banded, riband and striped appearance.
These people were in Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted. The eruption released tons of pumice, a light volcanic rock. It completely buried the town and the people. Under the pumice, the bodies were preserved. -- Taran Kalle

Mount Elgon August 9, 1984 Description: Clouds encircle the lofty rim of Africa's Mount Elgon, a huge, long-extinct volcano on the border between Uganda and Kenya. The solitary volcano has one of the world's largest intact calderas, a cauldron-like central depression. The caldera is about 6.5 kilometers (4 miles) across and formed following an eruption, when the emptied magma chamber collapsed under the weight of volcanic rock above it.

Easter Island is noted for its stone human statues (called "moai") carved from volcanic rock. firstname.lastname@example.org
litlanesfoss waterfall in Iceland - "The remarkably regular six-sided columns of volcanic rock, called pillar basalt, were created when lava cooled down over a long period of time." And looks like Krypton.
Egypt not only has a "White Desert", which I posted, but also a "Black Desert". This black desert seems to be made of piles of shiny volcanic rock.
