The debris-avalanche deposit produced by the 1772 collapse of Papandayan volcano contains abundant angular clasts including the sulfur-rich clast beneath the rock hammer, in a hydrothermally altered, clay-rich matrix. Extensive thermal alteration of rocks within the volcano had occurred prior to the collapse.
