These amazing speleothems can be found nowhere else but in the Aguzou cave. These unique forms of calcite built up in water filled pools.

Physical and chemical conditions, over thousands of years, allowed the formation of spectacular crystals of calcite of an extreme purity.

Four places in the cave house these jewels. First the "Flower Gallery" and the "Chamber of 1001 Nights", with magnificent hollow triangles, then "Star's Bath" and a side niche where the visitor is surprised by crystals in the shape of fans or branches.
