    I've been trying to figure out what this stuff is.
    Is volcanita a brand of "sheet rock" or "dry wall"?

    I think "plasterboard" , "plaster of Paris"

    Thanks. When I googled plasterboard I got pages that look like the same stuff we call "sheet rock" in the US. From the bits and pieces I understood at the page about volcanita I was not sure it was the same thing. The Volcanita page included references to decorative panels, but I have never seen sheet rock sold as anything other than plain unadorned panels.

    "sheet rock" is new to me, we'd use "plasterboard" this side of the pond. I've never seen decorative panels either. Market niche?

    Apparently it is also a type of rock in geology, unless it is a misprint, it say volcánitas andesíticas.

    But I have no idea what it would be in English.

    andesitic vocanic rock?
