Book Back Ground

  • My book talks about mostly how they form and were you can find them usually. So I just broke it down and I also so put what rock formation are in the cave and mostly.

  • They don’t really talk about crystal caves that much but I would recommend because they tell you a lot of rock formations.

  • Plus if you are doing a project on rock formations this is the book for you.


Rock formations

Rock Formations

  • They are made shining dazzling display of pure beautiful attractions. They are made of drops of water clinching together like a magnet then they freeze and don’t stop.

  • Real crystals it starts as a minerals and then a bunch of these things called nucleations and they go on the top of crystals and then they build up and get bigger and so forth.
