Lurus volcano is a small volcano on the north coast of East Java, north of the larger Iyang-Argapura massif. It is not well studied, but could potentially still be active, and pose a threat to nearby industrial areas.
Probably related to its unusual position off the main volcanic aarc, Lurus' earliest magmas are unusual in their composition, because they contain extremely low silica, producing leucite-bearing rocks. Later magmas were more typical for subduction zone volcanoes (andesitic and trachytic).
