[trefwxuj] Is lava liquid?

Is lava, or magma, fully liquid or is it a suspension of crystals whose melting point is higher then even lava?  It probably depends on which lava or magma where.  Both pressure and temperature matter.  Where do crystals start to form?  Deep inside the earth?

Inspired by the crystallization of diamond in volcanic pipes.
