  Magma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Magma is a complex high-temperature (between 650 and 1200 °C) silicate solution that is ancestral to all igneous rocks.
Magma rises primarily because a melt is less dense than its source rock, it is propelled upward through the lithosphere by the buoyancy that its lower density creates (the way less dense wood is pushed up and floats in denser water).
Magma is composed mainly of silica; alkalis (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium) and iron.

 Magma (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Magma is a French progressive rock band founded in 1969 by classically-trained drummer Christian Vander, who claimed as his inspiration a "vision of humanity's spiritual and ecological future" that profoundly disturbed him.
A remarkable aspect of Magma's albums is that Vander actually invented a constructed language, Kobaian, in which most lyrics are sung.
So many musicians played with Magma over the years, who then went on to form their own solo projects and/or spinoff acts, that the Kobaian term Zeuhl came to refer to the style of these bands and the French jazz fusion/symphonic rock scene that grew around them.

 Photoglossary - Magma/Lava - Io: Jupiter's Volcanic Moon
Magma is hot, molten rock that forms beneath the Earth's surface in the lower crust and upper mantle.
The amount of silica in a magma greatly determines its viscosity (resistance to flow), and viscosity influences the type of eruption that may occur when the magma reaches the surface.
Granitic magmas, which have a higher silica content, are thick and sluggish and tend to plug the vent from which they are extruded.

Magma Firestop IMW 435 is an internal fire prevention treatment which is sprayed on the inside of a thatch roof and onto the supporting wooden beams.
Magma Topcoating provides an invisible coating on the thatch which impedes the formation of moss, reduces the harmful impact of polution and UV radiation, and extends its life by creating a water resistant barrier which will protect the thatch against the relentless weathering process.
Magma Roofclean and Magma Dirtremover were formulated to provide an easy and effective way of removing dirt and moss from thatch to restore its original beauty.

Magma migrates either at depth or to the Earth's surface and is ejected as lava.
As magma cools, crystals form in a systematic manner, which is most simply expressed in the form of Bowen's reaction series; early high-temperature crystals will tend to react with the liquid to form other minerals at lower temperatures.
Transport and emplacement of magma is strongly affected by its viscosity and by the fracture characteristics of rocks through which it moves.

 USGS Photo Glossary:
Sketch of a magma reservoir beneath a volcano and a conduit leading up to a lava dome at the surface.
Magma is molten or partially molten rock beneath the Earth's surface.
Magma typically consists of (1) a liquid portion (often referred to as the melt); (2) a solid portion made of minerals that crystallized directly from the melt; (3) solid rocks incorporated into the magma from along the conduit or reservoir, called xenoliths or inclusions; and (4) dissolved gases.

 CVO Website - Magma, Lava, and Lava Flows
In a continental environment magmas are generally in the Earth's crust as well as at varying depths in the upper mantle.
If magmas never breach the surface to erupt and remain deep underground, they cool much more slowly and thus allow ample time to sustain crystal precipitation and growth, resulting in the formation of coarser grained, nearly completely crystalline, igneous rocks.
All magmas contain dissolved gases, and as they rise to the surface to erupt, the confining pressures are reduced and the dissolved gases are liberated either quietly or explosively.
