Description
English: Assorted shapes of Pele's tears collected a few kilometers downwind from Mauna Ulu from along the Hilina Pali Road on Kilauea Volcano, Hawai`i. U.S. dime for scale in lower right. When pieces of magma shoot up into the air during a volcano eruption, they solidy on falling. Some form these shapes, which are called Pele's hair or tear because Pele is the goddess of fire in Hawaiian mythology. A Pele tear is usually connected to a strand of hair.

This image has currency in it to indicate scale.

Avoid using objects such as coins for scale, as they will require people unfamiliar with them to look up the dimensions or guess, both of which defeat the purpose of the object in the first place. Coins are particularly bad as they can reinforce a geographical bias, and some coins' designs are copyrighted.

Ideally, a photograph should include a ruler with the subject (as seen in this photo) or add a scale marking via an image editor instead (as seen in this photo). SI ("metric") units are the most commonly used worldwide (see metre, 1 E-2 m).

Examples of bad practice: here.
