Pillow lava is formed when lava touches water and cools instantly. It creates a soft curved shape and sometimes inside there can be spaces. Over time the pillow lava breaks down and it gets filled with sand and smaller rocks. The outer structures are more closely welded together due to being cooled quickly, creating interesting striped patterns. The volcanoes of Auckland are dormant and now grassed over.
