In the neighbourhood of Los Hervideros and El Golfo you can find the mineral Olivine in the lavarocks.
Officially it is forbidden to take it home, but they do sell it.... It is beautifull to see those little (and sometimes bigger pieces of Ilivine.
These small pieces were sold at Los hervideros for 1euro/each.

Olivine is an interesting mineral, sometimes used in jewelry. Here's a brief article that Andrew posted on about.com:

Nice information, Fleur!! We did saw a lot of necklesses , earrings and rings made from this mineral! Often in combination with lavastones ;-)
