Shawls of the Lucas Cave

About ☰

These incredible calcite crystal formations are called shawls.

Developing over hundreds of thousands of years, rainwater seeping through cracks in the limestone rock follows the surface of the rock shelf and grows outwards, layer upon layer, forming delicate and often wide shawl structures.
