The caves
Since they have been created, caves conserve fantastic natural treasures hidden inside earth's darkness representing the fantastic underground landscape, formed by the patient and slow millenarian water work. The phenomenon because of caves are formed is named kartisism, which took its name from the process of dissolution of calcareous rooks, made by the water who infiltrates under the soil. Either exist other kind of rooks where caves expand themselves, they are salt, ice and gypsum, even created by the same process. Different caves are formed in lava during volcanic eruptions; so their geomorphology is depending from its formation. The water penetrating into the soil can become saturated of different dissolute minerals who deposit themselves on the rook creating strange and beautiful concretions, just to make enchanting and evocative the underground environment so fragile and delicate  who wants respect and protection.
