No question that an active volcanic event interacting with the surface provides the massive laboratory for the fabrication of a replicating chemistry able to change the general environment.
I also observe that volcanic ash is often containing solid crystalline acids which provides an immobile anvil for chemistry as well. Thus acidic or alkaline pores act as natural test tubes.
Hydrogen peroxide is very small. Thus it brings maximum mobility and reaction speed.
