life-globe: Electric Blue Lava Flows From Indonesia’s Deadly Kawah Ijen Volcano There is a group of volcanoes in Indonesia that spew lava that burns with brilliant blue flames. Located in East Java, the Ijen volcano complex is a group of stratovolcanoes that are highly composed of sulfur, which when ignited produces a distinct blue-colored flame. At night when one of the active volcanoes of Ijen erupts, red lava flows run down the sulfuric slopes clothed in bright blue flames, resulting to an eerie, otherworldly spectacle.
