World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

Desert of the Skeletons. Diamond Mines | Tribes - Planet Doc Full Documentaries
SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! Documentary "Desert of Skeletons" http://bit.ly/DocDesert Documentary "Desert of the Skeletons. Diamond Mines" The Skeleton Coast marks the limit of a desert which covers a narrow strip, no wider than 200 kilometres, running from southern Angola to the Orange river, the border with South Africa. Like a coastal belt, the dunes and rocks of the Namib desert cover 250,000 square kilometres along more than 2,000 kilometres of the Atlantic coast of Namibia. From the air, this mass of orange-coloured sand seems endless. These are the tallest dunes in the world, and below them lies the world's largest diamond deposit. It is a fantastic sight, which could only have been created by nature. But every year, there is a veritable explosion of life along the Skeleton Coast. In October, the sea-lions come to these coasts to give birth. At this time of year, Cape Cross is home to the largest colony of sea-lions over one hundred thousand of them. Outside the breeding season, males of the species are rarely seen they start to arrive at the end of October, in order to mark out their territory. The first European to set foot on this coast was the Portuguese, Diego Cao, in 1486. A year later, another Portuguese navigator, Bartolomé Días, with his three ships, sailed into the bay, seeking protection from a storm. After many attempts, he finally managed to land, and named the bay 'Angra Pequena' (small cove)*. But it was not until 1883 that the first stable settlement was established, when the German navigator and merchant, Adolf Lüderitz, reached an agreement with the head of one of the Nama tribes. Lüderitz bought the bay for a relative small amount of money and sixty rifles, in order to set up a whale processing plant here. A few months later, Kanzler Bismark declared Namibia a protectorate of the German Empire. In 1904, war broke out between the Nama and the Germans, and Lüderitz became the first prisoner of war. But the real industrial and economic boom came later, with the discovery of the diamond mines. In just four years, the town was transformed from a small, remote fishing port, into one of the most important cities in Southern Africa.

Searching for Diamonds - The Heartless from our first EP "Weary Hands" Homepage: www.facebook.com/searchingfordiamonds Engineered, mixed and produced by Sebi @ SOS Basement, Oberentfelden http://www.sos-basement.ch/ Mastered by Dan Suter @ echochamber, Zürich http://www.echochamber.ch/ Lyrics: Strive for the change A piece of our heart, a piece of hope for those in need Open their graves A piece of our heart, a piece of hope for those in need Now listen up It’s sad to know that we can live our lives In all its beauty and abundance While some never find They keep on searching and wishing for the end To escape the misery they’ve learnt to accept Tell me what it’s like to walk down a crowded street Still having to feel all alone, like everybody’s a potential enemy Alone amongst a thousand, a self-centred generation Is this the direction we’re heading into, just a bunch of narrow minded bastards? Send out your heart to those who had theirs torn so long ago How can we abandon them to their fate? The broken-hearted, hopeless and unloved The epitomes of lives never lived But lives not yet to reach the end The broken hearted may find solace The unloved may find love And truth may come to those desperately seeking We can rot alone when we’re buried six foot deep For now take the walking dead out of their graves With your heart as big as an ocean Lead them back to live Be their guiding light Keep this in the back of your mind You’re privileged to feel alive Now feel alive

Lucky Woman Opened a Clam and Found THESE Inside!
Women who like wearing jewelry usually love diamonds, gold, and silver. Other women prefer pearls. Pearls are beautiful, hard gems that come in white, red, gray, blue, green, and black. They are typically spherical in shape, but there are those that form unevenly, i.e. baroque pearls. Perfectly round pearls are considered the most beautiful and they are ideal to be used as jewelry. Oysters produce these precious, iridescent stones. Amazingly, they are the by-product of a biological process that occurs when an irritant or a foreign substance such as a food particle, enters an oyster’s shell. Contrary to popular belief, the irritant is hardly ever a grain of sand. Clams and mussels can also produce this precious stone, but not as frequent as oysters do. Imagine then this woman’s surprise when she opened a giant clam and found not just one pearl inside, but perhaps more than a dozen! What a very lucky girl indeed.

Klerksdorp Sphere
Klerksdorp Spheres are "out of place" artifacts, found in sedimentary rock, in a coal / diamond mine near Ottosdal, South Africa. It is believed these objects are up to 3.8 billion years old. These objects are spherical/ovoid shaped -- similar to how a planet like Earth or Jupiter are "squished" -- all planets are not perfectly round, they are "bulged" at their equator due to the planet's rotation. All Klerksdorp Spheres have 2 or more parallel lines which run around the equator. These lines are always equidistant from each other. Some argue that the medal composition is not a type of metal which exists naturally on Earth. However, others have stated that these metals can exist on Earth, if chemical components are mixed. Somehow, although the Earth's pressure and heat can create the coal and diamonds in the mine, these objects were not destroyed. The exterior shell of each ball is a consistent number of centimeters thick, with a gooey substance at the center, which turns to dust when exposed to oxygen. Each sphere is balanced on the center of gravity of the sphere -- when you hold it in your hand, it feels solid and balanced, like it has a weighted exterior, but not so much a weighted core. They also have a consistent radius from the core at all points on their surfaces. It feels like a "warm" rock -- similar to the type at Stonehenge (which has both warm and cold rock). There is no smell, and you cannot crush it with your hand. These objects are clearly made by some sort of intelligent life. But by whom? Who knew metallurgy back then, and why make hundreds of these things? From carbon dating, the Earth is estimated to be about 4.5 or 4.8 billion years old. The Klerksdorp Spheres are carbon-dated to 3.8 billion years. Which means, these spheres existed on Earth while it was only 1 billion years old. I personally was not aware that the Earth was a solid mass at 1 billion years. Modern humans have only been known to exist for the last 4000 or 6000 years - the height of Egyptian, Sumarian, and Mesopotamian cultures. Cor-Magnon humans existed 12,000 - 35,000 years ago. As apes, humans were swinging from trees 120,000 years ago. Even dinosaurs were supposed to have died out 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period. As far as we understand from linear history, no humans existed 3.8 billion years ago.

Russia's Massive Diamond Discovery

The discovery was made in the 1970's beneath a 35-million-year-old asteroid crater, 62 miles across known as Popigai Astroblem Apparently, they decided to keep it secret, and not exploit it, because the Soviet Union's huge diamond operations were already producing immense profits in what was then a tightly controlled world market. Moscow finally pulled back the veil of secrecy by allowing geologists to talk about it with Russian journalists, and according to one news agency, the diamonds are "twice as hard" as the usual gemstones, making them ideal for industrial and scientific uses. These types of diamonds are known as impact diamonds, which result when a meteor plows into a graphite deposit at high velocity. It's estimated that "The resources of super-hard diamonds contained in rocks of the Popigai crypto-explosion structure, are by a factor of ten bigger than the world's all known reserves." It will be interesting to see how this discovery affects the global diamond markets. Will this discovery bring prices down? Also, how amazing are meteors? Even though this discovery appears to be a result of a reaction between a space object and earth, its still a strong reminder just how elementally-rich asteroids can be. Will this spur on a renewed exploration of the minerals in and around crater sites? Even the thought of going straight to the source - like James Cameron and a few others want to do - doesn't sound quite as ridiculous once the imagination's gears start cranking about the possibilities of what could be discovered there.

$10 Diamond Indicates Huge Water Reservoirs in Earth's Interior
The discovery of a rare mineral called Ringwoodite from a river in Brazil indicates the presence of what experts theorize could be a huge underground reservoir that holds as much water as all of the oceans on Earth combined. The discovery of a rare mineral called Ringwoodite from a river in Brazil indicates the presence of what experts theorize could be a huge underground reservoir that holds as much water as all of the oceans on Earth combined. A diamond containing the rare mineral that has only been found before in meteorites suggests the presence of water deep underground. It was formed in what is known as the transition zone, about 255 to 410 miles under the surface of the Earth. Graham Pearson, the lead researcher from the University of Alberta is quoted as saying: "One of the reasons the Earth is such a dynamic planet is the presence of some water in its interior. Water changes everything about the way a planet works." The researchers estimate that they bought the diamond for about ten dollars, along with many others. A previous study also found that there are untapped sources of freshwater under the ocean. The extreme conditions that exist that far underground are inhospitable to humans and cannot be explored, which is why the Ringwoodite hadn't ever been found on Earth before now.

The 10 Biggest and famous Diamonds in the World See More videos by Diamancia here : https://www.youtube.com/user/diamancia Music Link: http://adf.ly/7kQrJ 10. The Millennium Star, Weight: 203.04 carats The Millennium Star is internally and externally flawless pear-shaped diamond (total of 54 facets). With the weight of 203.04 carats it is the 10th largest diamond in the world. Originally, the rough stone was 777 carats found in the Mbuji-Mayi district of Zaire (Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1990. After 5 months of studying and planning the cutting of the stone, it was decided to cut the rough diamond into three pieces. The Millennium Star is the outcome of the largest piece. The value of the stone hasn't been revealed but the Millennium Star was insured for 100 million English pounds, this is believed to be a fraction of its true worth. 9. The Red Cross, Weight: 205.07 carats The Red Cross is canary yellow cushion-shaped diamond with weight of 205.07 carats. The rough stone weighed 375 carats and was found in Kimberly mines (South Africa) in 1901. The diamond was presented as a gift to the art sale held in London by Christies in 1918, on behalf of the British Red Cross Society and the Order of St. John. Another rare feature is that a Maltese Cross is distinctly visible in the top facet, hence the double appropriateness of its name, the Red Cross Diamond. 8. The De Beers - Weight: 234.65 carats The De Beers diamond was found in Kimberly mines in 1888, the rough stone weighed 428.50 carats and measured 47.6 mm through its longest axis and 38.1 mm square. Weighing 234.65 carats, the De Beers is the 8th largest faceted diamond in the world. After its display in Paris the Maharaja of Patiala bought the De Beers. In 1928 Cartier of Paris set it as the centerpiece of a ceremonial necklace that came to be known as the Patiala Necklace. The necklace originally contained about 2,930 diamonds weighing about 962.25 carats. Today's whereabouts of the De Beers diamond and the Patiala Nacklace is unknown. 7. The Jubilee - Weight: 245.35 carats The Jubilee is a colorless cushion-shaped diamond with a weight of 245.35 carats. The original rough stone, an irregular octahedron without definite faces or shape weighed 650.80 carats and was found in the Jagersfontein Mine towards the end of 1895. When during the cutting it became evident that a superb diamond of exceptional purity and size was being produced, it was planned to present it to Queen Victoria. In the end this did not happen and the diamond remained with its owners. The following year marked the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria (the 75th anniversary of her coronation) so the gem was renamed the Jubilee to commemorate the occasion. 6. The Centenary - Weight: 273.85 carats The Centenary was found in Premier mine in 1986, in its rough form it weighed 599 carats. When cutting was completed the Centenary weighed 273.85 carats, measured 39.90 � 50.50 � 24.55 mm, and had 247 facets - 164 on the stone and 83 around its girdle. Never before had such a high number of facets been polished onto a diamond. The true value of the Centenary diamond is unknown, but the diamond was insured for around $100 million in 1991. 5. The Spirit of de Grisogono - Weight: 312.24 The Spirit of de Grisogono, at 312.24 carats, is the world's largest cut black diamond, and world's 5th largest diamond. In a white gold mounting, it is set with 702 white diamonds totaling 36.69 carats. This diamond originally had a rough weight of 587 carats and was mined several decades ago in west Central Africa before being imported into Switzerland. 4. The Cullinan II - Weight: 317.40 carats The Cullinan II is the massive 317.40 carat cushion shaped diamond in the center-front of the Imperial State Crown of Great Britain. Cullinan II was cut from the largest gem-quality diamond ever found, it weighed 3106 carats, or about 1 1/3 pounds. It was named after Sir Thomas Cullinan, who opened the mine and was visiting on that eventful day. The nine larger stones of the Cullinan diamond remain either in the British Crown Jewels or in the personal possession of the Royal Family. 3. The Incomparable - Weight: 407.48 carats 2. The Cullinan I - aka the Star of Africa Weight: 530.20 carats 1. The Golden Jubilee Weight: 545.67 carats See also Top 10 Most Expensive Diamonds In The World

Biggest Ever Flawless Blue Diamond To Be Put On Auction
The biggest ever blue diamond prepares to go on sale with a price tag of at least 22 million dollars. Full story: Auction house Christie's on Friday (May 9) presented the biggest flawless blue diamond which will be put up for grabs on May 14. This diamond will be part of 260 exceptional jewels with a total low estimate of 100 million Swiss francs, or over $112 million. "We are here actually for this amazing auction which is an auction of 260 lots, and of a low estimate of around 100 million Swiss Francs and of course the highlight of this auction is a 13.22 carats fancy vivid blue diamond flawless which is the biggest flawless fancy vivid diamond ever appeared at auction," said Christie's jewellery specialist Daniel Struyf. Dubbed "THE BLUE", this magnificent stone is the largest flawless vivid blue in the world and is estimated between $22 million and $26 million. "It is an amazing stone because you have to know that 'flawless' means that it has no impurities from the outside nor the inside and in the last 35 years, when it comes to vivid blue diamonds, there are only five stones that were between 10 and 11 carats. So at that point we can say that this is an amazing piece that we have at auction and we're actually very proud of that," Struyf added. Another unique stone which will be sold off on May 14 is the Ocean Dream, a fancy vivid blue-green triangular-cut diamond ring weighing 5.50 carats and worth at least $7.8 million. "It's a 5.50 carat - and now we go into the green direction - it's a fancy vivid blue-green diamond and it is also the biggest one ever appeared at auction also. It is more like of a triangle shape, and if you see also the stone, it has also an estimate of 6,8 million (Swiss francs - $7.8 million) in low estimate, it is also a magnificent stone, amazing colour, I'm also proud that we have this stone," Struyf said.

Rio Tinto Unearths Australia's Largest Rare Pink Diamond(Jubilee) At Argyle Mine
http://RareInvestment.com - An Australian mining company says it has found a 12.76-carat pink diamond, the largest rough pink diamond found in the country. The rare diamond was found at Rio Tinto's Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia's East Kimberly region.Estimated to be worth millions, it has been named the Argyle Pink Jubilee, and is being cut and polished in Perth.It will be sold later this year after being shown around the world, including in New York and Hong Kong.The process of polishing and cutting, which began in Perth on Tuesday, is expected to take about 10 days. The diamond will then be graded by a team of international experts.More than 90% of the pink diamonds in the world come from the Argyle mine, a Rio Tinto statement said.The Argyle Pink Jubilee is a light pink diamond, the company said. It is similar in colour to The Williamson Pink - the diamond found in Tanzania that Queen Elizabeth II received as a wedding gift and which was subsequently set into a brooch for her coronation.A Rio Tinto spokesperson said that a diamond of this calibre was ''unprecedented''.''It has taken 26 years of Argyle production to unearth this stone and we may never see one like this again,'' said Argyle Pink Diamonds Manager Josephine Johnson.In 2010, a rare 24.78-carat "fancy intense pink" diamond was sold for a record-breaking $46 million (£29m), the highest price ever paid for a jewel, to a well-known British dealer at an auction in Geneva.That diamond had been in a private collection for 60 years.

World's Most Amazing - Biggest Holes on Earth
Thanks for watching. Please rate, comment, share and subscribe if u like my videos. Music: BO Crew - WHEN THE SKY TURNS BLUE 1. The Great Blue Hole The Great Blue Hole is a large underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It is a remarkable creation of nature. The Great Blue Hole is one of the world's most recognizable natural wonder. It is believed the hole is the world's largest sea-hole. It is about 125 meters deep and its diameter is about 300 meters wide. It has been created as a cause of sea level increase about 65,000 years ago. It was formed during several episodes of Quaternary glaciation when sea levels were much lower. The analysis of stalactites found in Great Blue Hole shows that formation has taken place 153,000, 66,000, 60,000, and 15,000 years ago. As the ocean began to rise again, the caves were flooded. 2. The Diavik Mine The Diavik Mine is a mine in the Northwest Territory of Canada. This mine was opened in 2003 and it produces 8 million carats or about 1,600 kg (3500 lb) of diamonds every year. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700 people. Diavik Diamond Mine goes to 240 meters below the surface. 3. Guatemala City Sinkhole In 2007 Guatemala got one of the biggest holes in the world. At first they believed that the hole has been the consequence of rain during the tropical storm Agatha. Later they discovered that this hole was caused by humans. According to Sam Bonis, a geologist at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, who is currently living in Guatemala City, a burst sewer pipe or storm drain probably hollowed out the underground cavity. The Guatemala City sinkhole, estimated to be 18 meters (60 feet) wide and 100 meters (300 feet) deep, appears to have been triggered by the deluge from tropical storm Agatha. 4. Udachnaya pipe Udachnaya pipe is a diamond deposit in the Daldyn-Alakit kimberlite field in Sakha Republic, Russia.It is an open-pit mine, and is located just outside the Arctic circle. Udachnaya pipe is more than 600 meters (1,970 ft) deep, which makes it the 3rd deepest open-pit mine in the world. Since 2010,Udachnaya pipe has been controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa. 5. The Bingham Canyon Mine The Bingham Canyon Mine is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The Bingham Canyon pit is now 2.5 miles wide and very deep.The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 1.2 km (0.75 miles) deep, 4 km (2.5 miles) wide, and covering 7.7 km² (1,900 acres). 6. The Mirny Diamond Mine, Russia Mir Mine which is also called Mirny Mine is an open pit diamond mine located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. The mine is 525 meters (1,722 ft) deep and has a diameter of 1,200 m (3,900 ft), and is the second largest excavated hole in the world, after Bingham Canyon Mine. 7. Chuquicamata, Copper Mine, Chile Chuquicamata is also one of the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. Its depth of 850 meters (2,790 ft) makes it one of the deepest open-pit mine in the world. It's an industry that has begun since 1882, although it started operating properly in 1911 when US capitals finished its construction. Today, the production reaches the 630 tons of fine copper every year. 8. The Monticello Dam, Napa County, California, US Located at the Monticello Dam at Lake Berryessa in Northern California, this gigantic drain acts as the lake's spillway. This place also known as "Glory Hole" reaches capacity, the spillway swallows water at a rate of 48,800 cubic feet per second, emptying about 700 feet away through an enormous concrete pipe. 9. Kimberley Diamond Mine, South Africa Kimberley is a city in South Africa and the capital of the Northern Cape. It is located near the confluence of the Vaal and Orange Rivers. Originally the hole was 240 meters deep, but after it has been abandoned it was used to throw debris in. The underground Kimberly Mine was mined to a depth of 1097 meters. The mine is closed 1914. Approximately since 1871 until 1914, 22,5 million tons of earth were moved. Today, the Big Hole is about 215 meters deep, but 40 meters of ground water leave only 175 meters visible. 10. Darvaza Gas Crater -- The Door to Hell Derweze is a Turkmenistan village of about 350 inhabitants, located in the middle of the Karakum desert, about 260 km north from Ashgabat. Darvaza Gas Crater or the "Door to Hell" named by a localist is a 328 feet wide hole. This hole has been on fire, continuously, for the last 38 years.

Earth's Extremes - Volcanoes in South and Western Australia
Thanks for watching.... Mount Burr, South Australia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Burr,_South_Australia Mount Gambier (volcano) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Gambier_(volcano) Mount Schank https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Schank Newer Volcanics Province https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newer_Volcanics_Province Mount Miurhead Western Australia --------------------- Argyle diamond mine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argyle_diamond_mine Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_volcanoes_in_Australia Music: Big Sky,Silent Partner; YouTube Audio Library A volcano is a rupture on the crust of a planetary mass object, such as the Earth, which allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. Earth's volcanoes occur because the planet's crust is broken into 17 major, rigid tectonic plates that float on a hotter, softer layer in the Earth's mantle. Therefore, on Earth, volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging. For example, a mid-oceanic ridge, such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, has volcanoes caused by divergent tectonic plates pulling apart; the Pacific Ring of Fire has volcanoes caused by convergent tectonic plates coming together. Volcanoes can also form where there is stretching and thinning of the crust's interior plates, e.g., in the East African Rift and the Wells Gray-Clearwater volcanic field and Rio Grande Rift in North America. This type of volcanism falls under the umbrella of "plate hypothesis" volcanism. Volcanism away from plate boundaries has also been explained as mantle plumes. These so-called "hotspots", for example Hawaii, are postulated to arise from upwelling diapirs with magma from the core–mantle boundary, 3,000 km deep in the Earth. Volcanoes are usually not created where two tectonic plates slide past one another. Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, not only in the immediate vicinity of the eruption. One such hazard is that volcanic ash can be a threat to aircraft, in particular those with jet engines where ash particles can be melted by the high operating temperature; the melted particles then adhere to the turbine blades and alter their shape, disrupting the operation of the turbine. Large eruptions can affect temperature as ash and droplets of sulfuric acid obscure the sun and cool the Earth's lower atmosphere (or troposphere); however, they also absorb heat radiated up from the Earth, thereby warming the upper atmosphere (or stratosphere). Historically, so-called volcanic winters have caused catastrophic famines. At the mid-oceanic ridges, two tectonic plates diverge from one another as new oceanic crust is formed by the cooling and solidifying of hot molten rock. Because the crust is very thin at these ridges due to the pull of the tectonic plates, the release of pressure leads to adiabatic expansion and the partial melting of the mantle, causing volcanism and creating new oceanic crust. Most divergent plate boundaries are at the bottom of the oceans; therefore, most volcanic activity is submarine, forming new seafloor. Black smokers (also known as deep sea vents) are an example of this kind of volcanic activity. Where the mid-oceanic ridge is above sea-level, volcanic islands are formed, for example, Iceland. Subduction zones are places where two plates, usually an oceanic plate and a continental plate, collide. In this case, the oceanic plate subducts, or submerges under the continental plate forming a deep ocean trench just offshore. In a process called flux melting, water released from the subducting plate lowers the melting temperature of the overlying mantle wedge, creating magma. This magma tends to be very viscous due to its high silica content, so often does not reach the surface and cools at depth. When it does reach the surface, a volcano is formed. Typical examples of this kind of volcano are Mount Etna and the volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volcano
