Black Iceberg Photo on Reddit Goes Viral

Is this the iceberg that sank the Titanic?

Probably not. But it sure has captured our attention.

The astonishing black iceberg was recently posted by a Reddit user by the name of Rundboll and has since gone viral – already receiving more than 1,200 comments. Who knew a single photo of an iceberg could turn viral?

So far, the photo has been spread all across the internet and even made it on MSN and CBS.

Perhaps you thought icebergs only came in white, but they can actually range in color from green to blue.

Blue icebergs are the result of the ice overturning, revealing the smooth portion below the water. Emerald green icebergs are not only rare, they are stunning! According to an article in The New York Times, only one in every 1,000 icebergs is green. The variations in the color of the ice may also be due to age and light refraction.

After seeing the photo of the black iceberg, we wonder how many other marvelous natural phenomenons there are like this in the world.

So, what do you think of this rare jewel? Awe-inspiring or overrated?
