The 23 Coloured Earth
The origin of the 23 Coloured Earth dates back to millions of years after the volcanic eruption of the Bassin Blanc!
During the eruption, the cooling lava solidifies quickly and combines its chemical elements with silica structures into vitreous, small crystals. The chemical composition of basalt, ancient dark igneous rock, changes according to the conditions of the original magma.
When exposed to the surface conditions, the mineral and chemical composition of the molten rock changes progressively. The weathering process that followed produced these different colours of the Earth that we can now observe.
You will have the opportunity to contemplate this fantastic piece of land on its many colours and discover first-hand this unique natural phenomenon.
