Lava over ice. Completely mesmerising.

You wouldn't think this video was 8 minutes long after sitting through it with your jaw slightly ajar and your eyes fixed at your screen in wonder. I love lava. It is an incredible thing that rocks can even get so hot that they can be poured but I had never considered how interesting and entertaining it would be to watch when in contact with something at the other end of the kelvin scale.

Watch in awe as the bubbles grow into glass domes and burst before settling into black rivers and boulders of semi-molten rock.
