Inverse

Humans can walk over hardened lava that was molten only 30 days prior, and, in some places, still radiating heat.  Incredibly, walking across fields of the rough, black surface, it seems as though this surface is the perfect inverse of snow.  Lava starts off glowing and hot, solidifying as it cools; snow begins glittering and cold, melting as it warms.  Both sparkle, both change shapes seamlessly and in many different ways: sometimes they crunch underfoot, sometimes they crumble away, and sometimes big chunks can get kicked away in their entirety, but coolest by far, both are completely unconstrained in their forms.
