Magma erupts to the surface as lava, which is an orange/reddish color. When it cools, it turns into a dark gray color, almost like the color of ash. Here is a picture:
Although there are several types (melts) of magma the most common is basaltic (out of basaltic, andestitic and rhoylitic) which is comprised of mostly of silicates, oxygen, aluminum, alkalis, magnesium and iron. The reddish yellow coloration, such as in the above picture comes mostly from the presence of iron.
Well, the colour of molten rock is red or glowing orange if it is realy hot. You can compare it with lava wich was just coming out of the volcano. Glowing red hot, as we say. E.g. look on the picture, the yellow part is realy fresh.
Interesting. Do you know if magma is hotter when it is yellow or orange?
Is magma just melted rock?
I think its red,orange,and yellow color all mixed together.
I would think a yellow red or orange color.
The color of magma is orange and a redish color.
Mamga can range in color depending on the firm that it is in. When it is molten it can be seen as a reddish orange; however when in solidified mineral form it is seen as being black. I believe the black coloring is due to the mafic structure of the mineral and also the feldspar that is present within it. Also, I believe that uncooled magma is (the orange red stuff) is not actually referred to as magma but rather lava.
I agree. Looks like an orange and reddish color.
if you have the time to ask such a stupid question shouldnt you be curing like aids, this was a stupid question jk i love you, like i really really love you i want you to have my babies. your not feeling this?? 😡 i really loooovvvvveeeeee youuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Inside the volcano, magma is a lighter greyish color. But, as it erupts it is reddish-orange.
between red and black
It has a charcoal top, with an orange-red center. It’s kind of like a really dangerous desert.
When molten, it is a reddish orange color with some black. When solid,it is usually blackish because of the mineral content.
Its like reddish ! its so pretty !!
Magma, being molten rock, actually has no color of its own. The and red hues you see are a byproduct of the immense amounts of energy being generated by liquid rock. You see, as rock is heated up, its atoms start to move faster and faster in place until they begin to move freely past each other, that’s the moment of liquification. The high-frequency of the moving atoms releases energy at the surface in the forms of heat and light.
black on top, with a color like fire. it is like yellow, red, and orange melted and molded together to create a fiery hot, molten mass we know as lava or magma.
Heres a photo of Magma mixing with rock to form silver quartz.
Magma can be a fluorescent orange while it is still in its liquid form, but is slowly turns black as it solidifies (turns solid).
Magma also known as “volcano lava” has a red tinge color. Sometimes is can be a grayish red color. Most lava pours out of the volcano in a rapid speed and can change the color. Here is a list of color for magma: amaranth, auburn, burgundy, cardinal, camine, cerise, chestnut, crimson, dark red, electric crimson, fire brick, flame, folly, fuchsia, lust, magenta, raspberry, red, violet, redwood, rose, rosewood, ruby, rust, scarlet, terra cotta, tuscan red, vermillion and wine.
Magma is white when its inside the volcano but, when it gets out its called lava and it turns red because air hits it just like blood!!! go on another site.. this site sucks!
