A small Icelandic company has been collecting volcanic ash from the Iceland volcano, filtering, drying and bottling it into small resealable glass containers and selling it as souvenirs. The jar can be opened in order to feel the texture and smell the latest work of nature from ‘The Land of Fire and Ice’.
The volcanic ash collected from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is proving to be the hottest souvenir from Iceland right now and consequently is available across most tourist shops in downtown Reykjavik, as well as online at Iceland’s premier online store, Nordic Store.
Nordic Store is an online shop based in Iceland that focuses on providing and selling the biggest selection of Icelandic products, delicacies and designs. The products on sale range from clothes, jewellery, music, DVDS, maps, travel guides, books, arts and crafts, health and beauty, souvenirs, and even food and beverages.
