Perlite is a naturally occuring amorphous volcanic glass that undergoes a unique heat treatment process during which it pops like popcorn, resulting in an incredibly lightweight and porous material. The heat causes the moisture within the glass to expand, forming numerous tiny bubbles, which dramatically increase its volume. This expansion process gives perlite its characteristic white colour and lightweight, airy structure.
