Rain of green mineral Olivine over Hawaii
According to news, residents of Hawaii have witnessed an unusual phenomenon – a rain of green minerals. In fact, this exciting “side effect” happened due to the eruption of the Kilauea volcano. As a result, beautiful green translucent pebbles – olivine – fell from the sky.
Olivine, caused by the eruption, is a typical high-temperature mineral. Formed in igneous rocks, it is widely presented in the Earth’s mantle. Jewelry variety of olivine is chrysolite, by the way, quite rare in nature. Olivine is one of the most common minerals on Earth, and it is its presence that explains the greenish shade of some beaches, including Hawaii. According to some estimates, more than 50% of the Earth’s upper mantle consists of this mineral or its variations. Nevertheless, the olivine falling from the sky is a rather rare phenomenon.
On Kilauea, lava usually flows out slowly enough, only occasionally small, but sharp bursts occur. The sudden release of lava into the air led to the precipitation of olivine: its particles fell into the air and quickly crystallized.
However, this is not the first “miracle” accompanying the eruption of Kilauea. Earlier, near the volcano, eyewitnesses noticed a blue flame that appeared due to the accumulation of methane.

The role of white, red and black colors for ancient cultures was very significant. Their semantics was associated with the most important phenomena of life itself, reflecting the deep mythological ideas about it and beliefs.
