The Puma Pinku region is highly volcanic, there is a type of natural cement that can be made from untreated volcanic gravel .. witness the cement in the ruins of the Colosseum in Rome, made from deposits of similar volcanic material quarried on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.

The weathering we mean is the reddish bloom that has appeared on the same poured block in the middle pic, which is from rust forming on the particles of iron in the concrete, and is absent from the earlier pic in the montage at right.

Concrete dome in the Tempio di Venere e Roma inaugurated by Emperor Hadrian in A.D. 135 .. which surely resembles the blocks at Puma Pinku.
