Rainbow Rocks in Mauritus and in China


In a stunning natural spectacle, the earth at Chamarel, Mauritius, is divided into seven colors – red, brown, violet, yellow, deep purple, blue, and green. The phenomenon, which is at its most vivid at sunrise, is the result of mineral-rich volcanic rock cooling at uneven temperatures. Bizarrely, the different colors never merge even when it rains, and if mixed together artificially in a test tube, they separate into seven distinct colors again a few days later.
