Product description

In history, pumice powder was used for dozens of purposes. Since classical antiquity this volcanic rock was used to shave and as a substantial part of Roman cement, concrete (also in the Pantheon) and for plastering. Pumice powder was used to scour parchment, so that pigments bind better and the parchment becomes more even. Pumice powder was generally used as an abrasive, also for the removal of rust. It was also used as a polish and as added to pigments in Classical and Medieval cosmetics.
