"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." Joseph Campbell

Skyline Caverns near Front Royal is one of only two caverns in the United States with calcite formations called anthodites (the other cave's display - which is not in Virginia - is much smaller in size and number - so ha!). Antodites grow one inch every 8000 years and are either pure white or stained brown by iron oxide. Skyline's crop sprouted in a vacuum left by a receding underground pool.
