Artist's Description

Ohio Caverns is a show cave located 30 miles from Dayton, Ohio near West Liberty, in the United States. A popular tourist destination and member of the National Caving Association, it is the largest of all the cave systems in Ohio and contains many crystal formations. Approximately 90% of its stalactite and stalagmite formations are still active. The cavern system was originally an aquifer, holding an underground river of melted glacier water. This river eventually receded to lower levels of the ground and is now unseen.

The Crystal King is the largest free-hanging stalactite in Ohio. At last measurement, the Crystal King was 4 feet 10½ inches long. It is estimated to weigh over four hundred pounds and be over 200,000 years old. It is also noteworthy that the Crystal King and Fantasy Land are farther from the surface than any other point of the cave. The designated Deepest Point is 103 feet underground.
