Silex is Latin for silica, the major component of rhyolite, the primary volcanic rock in Yellowstone. It lines the bottom of Silex Spring in the Fountain Paint Pot area in Yellowstone National Park,Wyoming, and forms terraces along the runoff channels. There is some variety of color around the edges of the spring but it is mostly just a beautiful blue (HOT!) spring.
