Skiadi is a remarkable rock formation on Kimolos, in the shape of a mushroom. Kimolos consists largely of volcanic deposits. This remarkable shape is due to a softer volcanic tuff (trunk of the mushroom rock) and a harder top layer, combined with wind erosion. It is created by a process called ablation, in which the dust carried by the wind continuously scratches the rock, eroding the softer layers at the bottom much more than the harder layers at the top. Through centuries, the stone has been shaped into a characteristic, unique form.
