Ashstone

Ashstone is a kind of volcanic rock formed from fine volcanic ash. During an explosive volcanic eruption, fragmentation of the magma can result in the formation of volcanic ash, consisting of sand-sized or smaller particles.

After settling and consolidation this volcanic ash can be considered to be an ashstone; a more widely accepted term is tuff.
