Mixed with pumice are parts of other rocks that were transported from the magma; above the pumice were trapped most of the corpses at Pompeii, wrapped in ash . Residues pyroclastic eruption were found in the area hundreds of square miles wide, also the experts have calculated that the height of the cloud of gas and pumice has reached 17 km.
