No, the density difference is small.

No, it's true; but we can make such temperatures only amidst explosions and
that's a poor simulation of the core.

Oh, I knew I would regret that comment. There's nothing mystical about the
core according to this theory; it's just a big electromagnet made of a
absent at the surface of the earth but quite mundane in the core.
