Pele’s hair from from 1966!

This is the other incredible specimen we got from the Icelandic Institute of Natural. History: Pele’s hair (volcanic strands) from the eruption of Surtsey.

This is so delicate that it almost instantly disappears after the eruption and is a classic volcano. I’m really excited we will have this back in Manchester!
