World's Most Unique Geological Wonders

When nature creates something spectacular one must wonder, “How on earth do these landscapes exist?” Whatever the answer may be, one knows there is no question that these geological wonders are the most spectacular creations on the planet.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona
Located on Navajo land, near Page, Arizona, Antelope Canyon is one of the most photogenic canyons in the west. The spectacular formation shines radiant warm-colored hues with angelic-like light flowing through the canyon walls. The Navajo’s name for the Upper Canyon is Tse Bighanilani, meaning, “the place where water runs through rocks.” The Lower Canyon is named Hasdestwazi, meaning, “spiral rock canyons.”

Great Blue Hole, Belize
The Great Blue Hole is part of the Lighthouse Reef System, which is 60 miles off the coast of Belize, near Belize City. This near perfect circular diving reef is 0.4 miles wide and is 480 feet deep, causing the true blue color. This scuba diving hotspot is loaded with fertile marine life and plenty of vibrant coral reef.

Cueva de los Cristales, Mexico
Located in Chihuahua, Mexico, is a cave with the largest selenite crystals ever found. These larger than life crystals tower high in 90-degree heat thanks to the hot magma flow found underneath the cave’s surface. Due to the intense heat, only scientists are allowed in the cave and can handle up to 10-minutes before feeling ill effects.

Sailing Stones, Death Valley, California
These sailing stones glide across the Racetrack Playa Desert without any animal or human help. The only explanation is the wind assists the movement, creating a pathway marking its past travel. The stones move every three to four years making this one of the most mystical spectacles in the world.

Eye of the Sahara
Located in Mauritania, the southwestern part of the desert contains a large circular “eye,” which is visible from space. Geologists originally thought a meteorite caused the formation, but now believe erosion caused the majestic wonder.

Pamukkale, Turkey
What looks like sheets of salt are terraces of water shaped from travertine, which builds up calcium carbonate deposited in water from hot springs. When the calcium dioxide degasses it forms “step-like” sheets or terraces that exude the most beautiful shades of white and blue.

The Blue Grotto, Italy
If blue is your favorite color, visit the Blue Grotto sea cave in Capri, Italy. Sunlight passes through a small hole radiating the blue reflection throughout the seawater. The Romans knew the Grotto and today has become an emblem of the Island of Capri.
