A lava cone is a type of volcano almost unique to the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. It is composed primarily of viscous lava flows. The cone can contain a convex profile due to the flank flows of viscous lava. Although most are found in Papua New Guinea, a Holocene Lava Cone group has been noted in Georgia, Western Asia.
