A large underground pool of molten rock lying under the surface of the earth's crust.
A magma chamber is a large underground pool of liquid rock found beneath the surface of the Earth. The molten rock in such a chamber is under great pressure, and given enough time, that pressure can gradually fracture the rock around it creating outlets for the magma. If it finds a way to the surface, then the result will be a volcanic eruption; consequently many volcanoes are situated over magma chambers. Magma chambers are hard to detect, and most of the known ones are therefore close to the surface of the Earth, commonly between 1 km and 10 km under the surface. In geological terms, this is extremely close to the surface, although in human terms, it is considerably deep underground.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage
The magma chamber is likely imparting its own stresses on the crust around and above it, as the system slowly recharges. The stress drives fluids through cracks, producing the small quakes. The current pattern of seismicity is similar to swarms seen at Mount St. Helens in 2013 and 2014; recharge swarms in the 1990s had much higher earthquake rates and energy release.
We often say"Forgive and Forget." That's the correct sequence IMHO. If you want to forget someone or some unpleasant event, you must first forgive. Forgiveness is the precursor to Forgetting. If you don't forgive, you'll never forget, and that someone or that unpleasant event will stay with you, carved inside your heart and deep in your mind. Like a magma chamber of a volcano, you will then embody the hot burning lava of hate and volcanic ashes of bad memories. So to move on with life, you ought to learn to forgive, first and foremost, even the worst people round you. The stream of life would then flow smoothly and seamlessly - onwards and upwards.
