Which Rocks Absorb Heat the Best? Hunker

The ability to retain heat is a function of the stone's specific heat capacity and density. Another factor in choosing stone could be how quickly the stone transfers heat, called thermal conductivity. Put the stone's capacity to store heat together with thermal conductivity to find the stone that absorbs heat the best, and does it the quickest.
