According to wiki, "The manufacture of basalt fiber requires the melting of the crushed and washed basalt rock at about 1,500 C (2,730 F). The molten rock is then extruded through small nozzles to produce continuous filaments of basalt fiber." That is not Victorian-era tech, it's not really practical much before when it was actually first attempted (1923).
