Rockwool is the recreation of a naturally occurring material found in Hawaii. The material was found next to volcanos after an eruption since the high winds would blow the molten rock, forming thin rock strings which were then discovered hanging on the nearby trees.
Rockwool insulation is produced liquifying rocks at high temperatures and spinning the liquid at a high speed to form thin fiber strings. This form of insulation boats an R-Value of 3.0-R to 3.3-R per inch.
