The soothing turquoise mineral waters of Iceland's Blue Lagoon, set against dark and jagged basalt from a young lava flow, defy visual norms, offering strange contrasts in color and texture across the scene. The silica and sulfur minerals precipitate from the outdoor cooling of superheated geothermal waters that first are used by a power plant, then released onto the adjoining lava fields. A different part of the lake supports a lucrative bathing spa, where tourists and natives alike soak to treat their skin and bask in the 100-degree (F) water.
