'Cave Crystals' by Namyr 'Cave Crystals' by Namyr
This beautiful formation was found about 4 miles into a cave system. So beautiful. Too bad it had fallen from its growth area on the ceiling.

I see! Was this the first time anyone had been in that part of the cave? It's so cool looking and I bet it was even better in person!

We were the first group to ever visit that particular branch yes. Although now that its mapped, more people cave there.
