Rocha dos Bordões corresponds to a columnar /prismatic jointing formed by the slow cooling of a trachybasaltic lava flow during its movement and setting. This cooling, without new flows of lava, makes the contraction caused by the consolidation of the magma to result in faults, mainly in the form of prisms (hexagons).
