Artist's Description

Sulphur Springs is the “world’s only drive in volcano”; it is located in Saint Lucia towards the southwestern side of the island, near Soufrière. Volcanologists say it is supposed to erupt in about 100 years and the impact of it can wipe out 3/4 of St Lucia. The water boils at 212 F but the super heated steam is hotter at 340 F. Colorful mineral deposits decorate the volcano. In these deposits are sulfur, copper, iron oxide, alkaline lead, calcium oxide, and carbon. Sulfur springs, near Soufriere (french for sulfur), have a weak spot in the crust of the enormous collapsed crater creating an upheaval of lava 410,000 years ago.
