The Beauty Of Blue flame Ijen Crater Really Stunning Eyes – Starting from the beauty of Raja Ampat in Papua, to the prehistoric site of Mount Padang in Cianjur, Indonesia has a variety of wealth and natural wonders. One such miracle is also found in the East Java region, precisely in the Banyuwangi and Bondowoso regions. In this area there is a mountain that is quite unique. Mount Ijen is named.
Mount Ijen which has a height of 2,368 m above sea level is part of a series of volcanoes that are still active in Java. This mountain has a crater that is a traditional sulfur mining site. Mount Ijen Crater, or better known as Kawah Ijen, is one of the largest acidic craters in the world. The scenery that can be seen in this crater is so extraordinary. Although there are no plants or animals that live around it, however, the sulfur liquid stored in the kalderanya emits a charming turquoise sheen when exposed to sunlight. In addition, the view of the miners working to take hard sulfur that forms around the caldera, really cannot be explained in ordinary words. However, that is not what makes the Ijen Crater other than others.
The unique charm of Ijen Crater is the presence of blue fire that comes from sulfur gas exposed to oxygen. During the day, the gas and sulfur that comes out may be turquoise and yellowish green, but at night, the sulfur gas that comes out has a stunning electric blue color. The gas will burn when it comes into contact with the air, resulting in a blue flame. Liquid sulfur that flows out is also affected by this fire and comes on in flames, giving the effect of blue lava coming out from the stomach of Mount Ijen. This phenomenon only occurs in two places on earth. The first is in Ijen Crater, while the other is in the Danakil Depression, in the Afar Triangle region, Ethiopia.
