An active vent at the edge of the lake is a source of elemental sulfur, and supports a mining operation. Escaping volcanic gasses are channeled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in condensation of molten sulfur. The sulfur, which is deep red in color when molten, pours slowly from the ends of these pipes and pools on the ground, turning bright yellow as it cools. The miners break the cooled material into large pieces and carry it away in baskets.
Post a source please

If you all haven't had a look at the link Indigent posted, please go look now. There are around 30 pictures posted, and they are AWESOME!
Then go back to his post on page one, and give him a star. I think he deserves more than he has for sharing this with us.

I wonder if this is caused by high sulfur content, or some gas in the lava.
