Photo Gallery :: Lava caves of Hawaii


Host to the largest lava cave in the world, Kazumura Cave, the Big Island of Hawaii sucessfully drew the Winster Cavers into the subterranean world once more - and much to our surprise, we were delighted with the fascinating and varied experience, and the beauty of the formations. We didn't make it to Kazumura, but as you'll see, we didn't miss out.

These intricate lava stalactites have been stained with copper deposits - possibly azurite or chrysocolla. It is assumed that this staining is due to later deposition of the minerals.
