If ever utilized, magma represents a potentially enormous resource.

Magma is molten rock (lava) from which igneous rock forms. Magma is be formed from many types of rocks, including basalt, andesite, dacite, gabbro, and rhyolite
Molten rock below the surface of the earth.
Magma is molten rock located beneath the surface of the Earth (or any other terrestrial planet), and which often collects in a magma chamber. Magma may contain suspended crystals and gas bubbles. By definition, all igneous rock is formed from magma.
Magma is a fictional kaiju (giant monster) featured in the Japanese science fiction tokusatsu film Gorath, released by Toho in 1962. Based upon the real-life walrus and named after the molten rock found beneath the ground, the Magma suit was designed by special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya, and worn by stuntman Haruo Nakajima, who frequently performed kaiju in Toho films of the era, most notably their most famous monster character, Godzilla. The character is the only monster in the film, which primarily features a runaway collapsed star (the "Gorath" of the title) on a collision course with Earth and the efforts by the military to combat it.
