What foods are silica rich?
Silica is plentiful in many fibrous foods such as celery, peppers, carrots, potatoes, unrefined grains and cereals and beets. Silica is found in hemp leaves, nettles leaves and horesetail (tremendous source). Other herbal sources of silicon include alfalfa, blue cohosh, chickweed, cornsilk, dandelion, horsetail, red raspberry, Alfafla, Oat straw and stinging nettle. And, don't forget that Silica is also found in the shiny fruits and veggies such as red peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers

Thanks for the feedback!
silica rich magma associated with explosive eruptions because it tends to trap water and gas bubbles :)
This is because silica-rich magma is thicker. The thicker the magma, the chance for the dissolved gas in there to escape is less likely. This causes an explosion. When the gas…es do escape, they cause an even bigger explosion
lava rich in silica
The silica-rich magma, also called felsic magma, is more viscous than iron-rich or mafic magma. This means resists flow more (just as syrup is more viscous than water). Th…e high viscosity means that the felsic magma can trap more gasses, leading to explosive eruptions, rather than effusive ones.
Yes, yes it is :) hope this helps! :)
"Glow foods" are vegetables and fruits that help us "glow" when we eat them and to live better. They are basically the foods with the most minerals and vitamins for our shinny… hair, eye sight, healthy skin, better immune system, etc. Some common nutrients found in glow foods are vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene, Beta Carotene, calcium, potassium, selenium, phytochemicals, etc.
Silica is a natural element found within the Earth's crust. There are several different types of it. Silica gets inside magma when a volcano forms. During the formation, the m…agma from deep inside the Earth pushes its way up to the surface. As it progresses upward, it passes through the continental crust, or layer of crust below Earth's continents. Silica is abundant in that area. While the magma is in the continental crust, even if only for a little while, it mixes with the silica. Some parts of the continental crust aren't quite as plentiful in silica as others. Depending on the amount of silica mixed with the magma, the magma can become 'silica-rich', or have sufficient amounts of silica. This lavish amount of silica in the magma makes the magma thick and pasty. Then, when the volcano goes to erupt, the magma gets stuck in the caldera, or crater hole in the top of the volcano, because of its thickness. Pressure builds up behind the plugged exit, as more gas and magma yearns to escape. Eventually, this pressure builds up SO much that the magma cork gives way, allowing all the gases and lava to burst out of the volcano in a GIGANTIC eruption. This is why an explosive eruption has so much smoke, from the gas build-up inside of the volcano. Quiet eruptions don't because there is no gas pressure to stop the thin magma from leaking out of the hot spot/volcano. In conclusion, silica creates a thick magma. This results in a plugged caldera. Gas pressure within the volcano then builds up because of the thick magma cork. When the cork gives way, a HUGE eruption results, releasing all the gases and smoke. Hope that this explanation helped!
silica is a rich compound consisting of silicon and oxygen and tends to be thicker and is more resistant to flow. other lava with less silica flows easily so the amount of wat…er vapor and other gases trapped in lava influences how lava erupts.
Viscose lava e.g. andesitic or rhyolitic. This might not be the definition your looking for though.
Rich foods are often those with cream sauces. They could also be desserts that are filled with chocolate, whipped cream and other high calorie items.
Foods that contain silica are cucumbers and melons. These help skin, eyes, nails and hair remain healthy.
