Jewel Cave

This is a cave that was discovered in 1900 and declared by Theodore Roosevelt as a national monument by 1908.  It was named after all the glittering calcite crystals that line the cave walls and is now known as the second largest cave in the world.  It is approximately 148.27 miles long but honeycombed under only three square miles of land.
