Every geode is a mystery until it’s opened, and then it’s a wonder!
120 million years ago, in northern Uruguay, South America, a giant bubble formed inside a molten lava flow. Through intense pressure, heat and the presence of iron, millions of tiny amethyst crystals began to grow. When a farmer discovered this massive geode, Crystal Castle founder Naren and his daughter Manya flew to the site to check it out.
“We found this geode so awe inspiring, we knew we had to bring it home. This magical creation of Nature is our gift to the Crystal Castle in her 30th year. We hope you enjoy seeing what is the largest amethyst cave ever discovered in the world!”
The Enchanted cave is approximately 5.5 metres wide and weighs over 20,000 kilograms, that’s 20 tonne!!
A visit to the peaceful Crystal Castle includes walks in the exquisite natural surroundings. You can join the daily workshops and experiences, including the Music of the Plants, Crystal Experience and famous Peace Experience. Be in awe of the Enchanted Cave, the largest amethyst cave in the world, and also the world’s tallest geode pair, The Crystal Guardians. Be at peace with the largest stone Blessing Buddha in Australia, and the only Kalachakra World Peace Stupa in the southern hemisphere. Take home your copy of the Crystal Castle Guidebook.
