The Crystal Cave – Iceland’s glacial lagoon

Iceland’s Crystal Cave Is A Scene Of Pure Magic

Beneath the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier in Iceland’s Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, there is an enormous natural cavern of unbelievable beauty. The cave has been delicately sculpted from years of underground lava flow and geothermal heat emissions interacting with the hydrologic cycle, resulting in this breathtaking natural formation.

The ice that forms the walls of the cave is unbelievably dense, having been subjected to centuries of compression and stifling amounts of pressure. As ice involved in this process achieves higher levels of density, it is able to prevent less red and yellow light from the sun to pass through it, giving the cave its soothing blue glow.

In one of these pictures, it is as if you are looking at the stars in the sky and pondering the beauty of the glacier. And in another picture is as if it divides heaven and hell.

These glaciers again are a beautiful site. They are the last of a kind as many of the glacier in Antarctica are melting. It is good that there are some cold places on earth that capture the essence of the glacier in Iceland’s Crystal Cave.

CEO & Founder at Psychedelic Society and www.sociedelic.com. I created this community in 2013 shortly after finishing high school and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :)
