Strange Natural Wonders of the World
Take a look at these unique places around the world! The nature comes up with many surprises.
1. Split Apple Rock New Zealand
A popular tourist destination in the Tasman Bay off the northern coast of the South Island of New Zealand, Split Apple Rock is a geological rock formation, made of granite and in the shape of an apple which has been cut in half. The cleft to produce two sides of the apple was a natural occurrence, but it is not known when this happened.
2. Marble Caves Chile
The Marble Caves (Cuevas de Marmol) are located on a peninsula of solid marble bordering Lake General Carrera, a remote glacial lake that spans the Chile Argentina border, according to Atlas Obscura. The patterns that give the marbleized effect were caused by 6000 years of wave erosion.
3. Eye of the Sahara Mauritania
The Richat Structure, also known as the Eye of the Sahara, is a prominent geological circular feature in the Sahara desert in Mauritaniae. Visible from space, it has a diameter of almost 30 miles, and has become a landmark for shuttle crews. Initially interpreted as a meteorite impact structure, it is now argued to be a highly symmetrical and deeply eroded geologic dome that collapsed.
4. Moreaki Boulders New Zealand
The Moreaki boulders are huge spherical boulders scattered along Koekohe Beach in New Zealand. According to Maori legend, the boulders are eel baskets washed up from an enormous, sunken canoe. Scientists explain the boulders as calcite concretions formed about 65 million years ago.
5. Chocolate Hills Philippines
The Chocolate Hills are an unusual geological formation in Tagbilaran, Bohol, Philippines. According to a survey, there are 1,776 hills spread over an area of more than 20 sq. mi. covered by green grass that turns brown (resembling chocolates) during the dry season.
6. Cave of Crystals Mexico
Massive beams of selenite dwarf explorers in the Cave of Crystals in Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico, March 18, 2008. Some single gypsum crystals in this cave are 36 feet long and weigh 121,200 pounds, some of the largest natural crystals ever found.
7. Spotted Lake Canada
Located northwest of Osoyoos in British Columbia in Canada, Spotted Lake contains extremely high concentrations of minerals. Most of the water in the lake evaporates over the summer, leaving behind all the minerals in spots.
8. Hierve el Agua Mexico
A petrified waterfall? The Hierve el Agua, located in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, are actually natural mineral formations that have built up over thousands of years as a result of the mineral laden water. As the water scurries over the cliffs, the excess minerals are deposited, much in the same manner that stalactites are formed in caves.
9. Thor s Well Oregon
Gateway to the underworld? Located in Florence, Oregon near Cape Perpetua, Thors Well is a gaping sinkhole in Cooks Chasm with waves that can reach a height of 20 feet. While beautiful, the natural wonder can be dangerous. Sharp rocks are everywhere and a strong surge of water could suck you down into the abyss.
