    It has few advantages over glass and a few major advantages; like the melting point is a full 250 F higher than glass. when you are talking about the kind of quantities we are that adds up.

    I still like the stuff and think it may have a place in seasteading marine architecture.

    Ya, it seems quite interesting,

    sounds like a renewable resource,

    as can always get more basalt from volcanic deposits.

    My main concern is: how is it made?

    Can we produce it on a boat?

    For making cement, we simply need limestone,

    a hydraulic grinder, and a furnace.
