Strange rock
There are many weird-looking rocks in the area. Here's one, found about half a day away from the foot of Olmedo. It's about a meter and a half high.

The whole area is of volcanic origin, os I guess it could be lava. See also this thread. It could also be obsidian some proposed. I have no clue to be honest.

I do not think that it is obsidian. Most probably it is basalt. The cavities were formed by gas inclusions.
