Amazing striped and jade iceberg pictures

Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by Layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet Fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can Freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a Green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up When the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.
