The State of California, as many US states, is a land rich volcanic activity for many million years now. As a result, someone can find many systems of caves as well as spots with very rich gemstone reserves.

One of the best caves in California is the Black Chasm Cavern which is a great national natural landmark. The cave is of unique beauty and extremely interesting for those into geology. Great place to take your kids with you, especially if you have sons like my two boys, who love everything that has to do with geology, volcanoes and crystals. The Black Chasm Cavern is a great place to start or enhance your rock collection!
