Why is the Green Lagoon green?

Before going into details, it is necessary to comment on what is due to the peculiar coloration of the Green Lagoon. It receives its name by the tone of its waters. Due to their mineral composition, mainly formed by lead, magnesium, arsenic and calcium carbonate, the color offers frosted tones that seem taken from a science fiction movie.

Further, It is precisely because of this unique composition that the beautiful Laguna Verde is deeply toxic. So, when you approach to observe this supernatural wonder, you will see that there are no animal species in the area, especially the Andean flamingo, very common in other nearby lakes, since life cannot develop in its waters.
