    Spun molten basalt - that's why it's called rock wool.
    Rock wool or mineral wool is considered a green alternative to fiberglass. Here are a few benefits, it's hydrophobic compared to wet fiberglass, it's batts have a higher r-value than its fiberglass counterpart and it's fireproof.
    Having installed rock wool in the past, the shit is nasty and makes you itch way worse than wimpy fiberglass. It's nasty shit!
    I'd rather be the shitter pumper guy, than have to install rock wool for a living.
