Active volcano (three active craters at the peak).
Mt. Stromboli's activity is almost exclusively explosive, but lava flows do occur at times when volcanic activity is high.

Minerals listed are mainly from a volcanic fumarole deposit (minerals are formed by sublimation from volcanic gases).

From shoshonitic basalt lava flow and scoria samples collected from the last effusive activity (November 1975) zoned plagioclase and grains of saccharoidal azure quartz have been identified in the light fraction. The heavy fraction contains dark green pyroxene, olivine, dark green spinel, monticellite, and brown kimzeyite (Munno et al., 1980).
