When the magma came into contact with seawater, a violent magmatic phreatomagmatic eruption took place and the volcanic block soared into the sky and fell to the ground. The surrounding strata of volcanic rock were then eroded to form a number of strangely shaped towers.

In the surrounding earth you can see lots of "Accretionary lapilli". These round "Accretionary lapilli" are formed when volcanic ash accumulates around the outside of volcanic fragments containing a lot of water.
