Mysterious lava ‘egg’ explodes from volcano in Hawaii


A bizarre hollow, egg-shaped, object has been found after a series of explosions near a lava lake on Kilauea, Hawaii’s famous volcano.

Geologist Tim Orr found the jet black Pele’s Tear on the rim of the Halema’uma’u Crater.

“It’s an incredibly curious thing,” he told the Huffington Post.

“Nothing like this has been seen before.”

Named after the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes, Pele’s Tears are formed when lava bubbles form on gradually cooling flows.

Last week, a lava lake at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano exploded, and it spewed something very unusual—a mysterious, balloon-like object with a glassy shell. Explosions at the lake are typical activity, but this bizarre find is something scientists have never seen before.

“It’s kind of like a balloon,” Hawaii Volcano Observatory geologist Janet Babb said.

“It’s hollow inside with this thin, glassy shell, which is very fragile.”

Scientists remarked that this Pele’s Tear is a unique find as they usually shatter upon impact.

Kilauea may have more surprises in store for scientists – after lying quiet for 20 years, the volcano seems to be coming back to life with three explosions occurring this week alone.
