Contrary to all skeptics’ beliefs reading this, the photos below are real. These incredible striped icebergs were caught on camera floating carelessly in the Antarctic. Each of the formations is unique.

The unusual iceberg stripes are said to be formed by snow melting in its reaction to various weather conditions. Here is more information from Mail Online:

  • Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
  • When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.
  • Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.
