The New Student's Reference Work/Luray Cave
Luray′ Cave, a cavern near Luray, Va., remarkable not so much for size as for the great number and extraordinary shape of its stalactites. Some of these columns exceed 50 feet in length. Many are hollow, giving out bell-like notes when struck; and the colors range from waxy-white to yellow, brown or rosy-red. The cavern is lit with electric light, and attracts thousands of visitors every year.
