Jade Ice

Jade Ice
Sometimes ice melts, even in the Antarctic - usually near rocky areas where heat radiates. Small streams then run on the ice before plunging down crevasses where they eventually freeze again. This ice is denser and a different colour than the surrounding ice formed from compressed snow. When the glacier finally breaks away to form icebergs, the frozen stream shows as rare jade coloured ice.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and faves on this. As you might imagine, we saw an awful lot of icebergs, but this was the best of very rare examples of jade ice. Fortunately we were in zodiacs and were able to cruise around it taking photos. :)
